    Peitlerkofel
    Description

    Grandiose round around the South Tyrolean character peak Peitlerkofel. The long ascent through the Villnöss Valley to the Schlüterhaus and Kreuzkofeljoch is followed by a panoramic crossing of the Peitlerkofel south flank. After the short steep descent from the Gömajoch to the north, the route continues comfortably down into the Aferer Tal.

    The Peitlerkofel. This 2875 meter high dolomite peak rises like a threatening finger between Plose and Geislerspitzen into the sky of South Tyrol. In 1967, at the tender age of 23, a certain Reinhold Messner from the Villnöss Valley succeeded in the first ascent of the Direct North Face of his local mountain. Eight years later, another South Tyrolean signed the history book of alpinism: Heini Holzer, chimney sweeper from near Merano and steep face skier. The 1.53-meter-small Heini skied down the steep east face of the Peitlerkofel. Of course you can't reach the summit on a mountainbike. But whoever circles the north-western pillar of the Dolomites will experience it from all perspectives – including the north face with the Messner guide and the east face steep descent. The south-facing traverse to the Gömajoch is one of the mountainbiking highlights of the Dolomites – and the circuit is one of the most ingenious in South Tyrol!

    The tour starts in St. Peter in the Villnöss Valley. Via Reinhold Messner's home village St. Magdalena it goes to the Waldschenke. Always into the valley, you take path no. 33 to the Zanser Alm and via paths no. 36, 35 A and 35 to the Gampenalm and further on to the Schlüterhütte, which can be seen from far away. After a well-deserved stop for a bite to eat, you fight your way up to the Kreuzkofeljoch, perhaps one of the most beautiful vantage points in South Tyrol, only 50 meters high. First following trail number 35, later on a driveway and at the end again on a trail you cross the complete southern flank of the Peitlerkofel. When you reach the cross of the inconspicuous Gömajoch, you descend steeply towards the north and, following paths number 8B and 8A, keep going to the Würzjoch. Via state roads 29 and 30 you soon turn off again onto gravel. Past the gentian and edelweisshütte huts, you take the SS 29 to Russi's bridge and via SS 163 and paths 11, 11A, 32 back to St. Peter.

    Hints:

    • E-mountainbike: with a second battery or recharging at the Schlüter Hut a great E-MTB tour!
    • There is the possibility to ride from the Kreuzkofeljoch on a nice trail to the Peitlerscharte and then directly through a steep gully down to the Würzjoch road. This section is spectacular but very demanding. In addition, there are usually a lot of pedestrians on the track.
