Route: Scharnitz – Alpine Hut Kastenalm – Rossloch – Ridge Rosskar – Grubenkarspitze - Scharnitz
Ascent time: approx. 7 - 7.5 hours in combination with the bike, please plan enough time for the return!

This tour also gives you the opportunity of combining mountain biking with mountain hiking! Follow the road from the Karwendel hikers’ car park to the inn Gasthof Wiesenhof and continue through the Hinterautal valley past the hut Kastenalm (cycle this section if possible, walking involves an extra 2.5 hours). From here continue on foot into the Roßloch to the meadows 'Hintere Böden'. Here you more or less follow a stream bed into the Rosskar cirque. The path to the Dreizinkenspitze peak soon branches off to the left – ignore it and instead continue straight on and upwards. The trail along the foot of the western ridge is quite steep up to the Rosslochspitze summit. Keep to your left on the rocks climbing over wide, steep areas of scree up to the south ridge of the peak Grubenkarspitze. The summit can be reached along this ridge. Descent: follow the ascent route down. Attention: This hike is just for very good hikers without fear of hight and surefootedness.
