Top of Austria - Großglockner
. . . with skis on the highest mountain of Austria 3798m
The magnificent mountain world of the national park Hohe Tauern is a real paradise for ski touring enthusiasts. In addition to the Grossglockner with 3,798 m, there are another 300 peaks with more than 3.000 m to the national park. During our two-day tour with an anticyclic tour start on Sunday, we will have the power and the grandeur of this mountain world. The distinctive peak of the Großglockner is a worthwhile destination for every tour traveler, especially as the picturesque scenery and our lodging, the Stüdlhütte at 2.802 m, leave nothing to be desired. For the physical well-being the friendly hosts, who will spoil us with delicacies from the kitchen. The summit ascent on Monday makes this tour a very special experience.
Day 1: 13:00 pm, Welcome, material check and then we go. We start with touring ski through the Ködnitztal. Over the Lucknerhütte at 2,241 m we reach the Stüdlhütte (2.802 m) after a further 600 meters of altitude. After dinner, we will discuss the expedition for the summit tour the next day and let us explain the route. Ascent of 900Hm
Day 2: at about 07:00 am we start over the Ködnitzkees to the Glocknerleitl, depending on the circumstances we take the ascent to the Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte (Adlersruhe) or directly to the Glocknerleitl. Depending on the snow we make our ski depot at 3.520 m to 3.640 m. With crampons safely on the cable of the mountain guide, a snow flank runs up and over the east ridge to the Kleinglockner (3.770 m). A breathtaking view into the Pallavicinirinne and on the Stüdlgrat shows us the way to the Obere Glocknerscharte (3,766 m). The last ascent to the peak leads over the rock and ice to the Großglockner 3798m. After an extensive rest stop, you descend down to the ski depot and then ski down on an intoxicating descent down to the Luckner Hut and on to the Lucknerhaus. Here we will review the tour once again before we start the journey home, ascent 1000Hm - departure 1800Hm
