Panoramic view of the ridge from Muttekopf to Rotkopf, Pleiskopf and Alpjoch from the east. Click the image for a larger version. The southern limb of the Muttekopf syncline is deformed by several minor thrusts und thrust-related folds, like the Alpjoch syncline or the folds in the northern face of Pleiskopf. These thrusts are related to a major thrust that brings the Larsenn Klippe on top of Gosau deposits. In a megabreccia bed (center right), several huge boulders of Upper Triassic limestones were redeposited.
