Zinseler (South Tyrol)

The Zinseler ( Italian Cima di Stilves ) is a 2422  m slm m high mountain in the Sarntal Alps in Italy. The name of the mountain can probably be traced back to a source; "Zinselen" means "irregularly gushing".

Location and surroundings

The Zinseler lies in the north of the Sarntal Alps and is the local mountain of the northeastern village of Stilfes (municipality of Freienfeld ). The Eisack Valley runs to the northeast and the Jaufental valley to the northwest . In the south a ridge runs over the Hühnerspiel ( 2376  m ) to the Penser Joch ( 2211  m ). The pass road to the Penser Joch leads through the southeast flank of the Zinseler.

Routes to the summit

The normal route (marked mountain route ) begins at the Penser Joch. It first leads into the depression of the Jaufentaler Jöchl ( 2171  m ) and then along the flank of the Hühnerspiel over a connecting ridge to the summit cross in just over an hour .

Other marked hiking trails lead from the Jaufental from the hamlet of Gospeneid ( 1422  m ), in about four hours from Sterzing over the northwest ridge, and from Stilfes from the northeast and finally over the east ridge to the summit. From Gospeneid and Penser-Joch-Straße, the Zinseler can also be climbed as a ski tour in winter .

There are several stone almonds on the summit .
