Water between limestone and primary rock - the geology of the rear Pinnistal has unique features: Impressively, two different rock forms meet. A moderately difficult hike through the wild and romantic Pinnistal.
On the left, we see the mighty limestone reefs in rugged, horizontally layered wall alignments. The chasms of the Kirchdachspitze are 600 metres high, and the Ilmspitzen further back, with their jagged pillars and vertical walls, are reminiscent of the Three Peaks of the Dolomites. Hundreds of metres of light-grey scree slopes down to the valley floor. Under the mighty north-eastern flank of the Habichts, lush life virtually flows down into the valley: Dense shrubbery with alpine rose bushes, mossy soils, lush green birch trees. Small streams run down from the mountain in thin strands.
