CHARACTER – BLACK
Very nice and especially in autumn a great and moderate walk over the south-southeast ridge   to the summit of Hoher Riffler. The normally snow-free ascent has some slight climbs, which are also covered in descent (marked) - however good condition and concentration are required. 

DESCRIPTION 
From the Olpererhütte proceed over the suspension bridge eastwards of the Berliner Höhenweg to a point above the Friesenbergsee - at the fork do not follow the way to the Friesenbergscharte, follow the track with steeply increasing turns to the Friesenbergsee. This runs up to the Friesenberghaus - farther northwards, then more in an easterly direction to the broad saddle at the beginning of the ridge to Hoher Riffler. From the saddle on the broad, gravel-covered ridge up, it gives way to a flag on the left onto a grassy area – on the broad ridge up about 3,000 m - with little climbs up over a big stone covered area, depending on the choice of route directly on the ridge with climb (climbing level II), into the lateral flanks of mild up to climbing level I, partially marked - the ridge is quite soon into a scree slope, which finally ends in the southwest ridge, go on to the nearby peaks - the descent and return to Olpererhütte follows the same route.
