The Eiskögele is a 3,426-metre-high (11,240 ft) mountain in the Glockner Group in the western part of the main Tauern chain, a range of the Austrian Central Alps. It lies right on the border between the Austrian states of Salzburg, Carinthia and East Tyrol and thus forms a tripoint. The mountain has the shape of an ice-covered horn with a mighty North Face, a prominent Northeast Ridge (Nordostgrat) and a sharp firn edge (Firnschneide) to the west. From its base, the Oberwalder Hut, it is easy to reach via the Pasterzeboden glacier. It was first climbed on 30 July 1872 by the tourist B. Lergetporer from Schwaz and mountain guides, Michel Groder and Josef Kerer. The first solo ascent of the mountain was achieved in August 1891 by Ludwig Kohn from Vienna as part of a crossing from the Schneewinkelkopf.
