Blauberge (Wolfsschlucht, Halserspitz)

Blauberge is located in the south direction from Tegernsee lake and just on the border to Austria.
It consists of four peaks including the highest one Halserspitz (1863m). They are connected by a narrow ridge.
The south side seems to be a gentle farm while the north side is steep cliff.
It looks like a huge blue wall from the north side. This might be an origin of this name.

Today I hiked up from Wolfsschlucht (wolf ravine) at the east end and went along the ridge towards east.

Wolfsschlucht is already reported for Schildenstein.
It is an amazing ravine with steep rock which has some steel ropes for support.
After climbing up the wolf ravine, change the direction to east bound to Wichtlplatte with nice panorama view.

Halserspitz looks not so far away but stays always far away.
Keep walking and walking, being refreshed by panoramas on both sides.
Shortly after the branch to the  north ridge, I arrived at the peak with 360 degrees' panorama!

On the way back to Wildbad Kreuth, I had to mange steep, slippy and breakable north ridge of Halserspitz.
I had to be on time for the bus to Tegernsee.
It was lucky to reach the bus stop about 20 min before.

Bus stop Siebenhütten (822m, 9:30) -> Wolfsschlucht (984m, 10:25) -> saddle (1464m, 11:20) -> Wichtlplatte (1670m, 11:55)
-> Blaubergschneid (1787m, 12:20) -> Blaubergkopf (1787m, 12:55) -> Halserspitz (1862m, 13:20)@(3h50min)
Halserspitz (1862m, 13:50) -> Wildbad Kreuth (16:20) (2h30min)
(Standard duration would be 5h for up and 3h for down.)
