Jaufenspitze (South Tyrol)

The Jaufenspitze is a 2481  m high mountain in the Sarntal Alps in South Tyrol . Along with the Penser Weißhorn ( 2705  m ), the Zinseler ( 2422  m ) and the Hochwart ( 2747  m ), it is one of the more important peaks in the north-western group of the Sarntal Alps.

The normal route to the Jaufenspitze leads from the Jaufenpass ( 2094  m ) over the well-signposted path towards the summit. On the ascent, some via ferrata areas secured with steel cables must be overcome (difficulty A / B). The summit offers a beautiful panorama with views of the Stubai and Zillertal Alps as well as the Passeier Valley , the upper Wipp Valley and Sterzing . The north edge of the Jaufenspitze offers an interesting edge climbing tour in the IV level of difficulty.

The first tourist ascent was made in 1891 by Julius Pock
