Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2011


Superb weather. Started from the parking lot at 6:40. Climbed the 3 ferrates and reached the peak at 12:10. Quite a lot of people on the route. Rockfall on two occasions, backpack was hit on the first one - not much fun :(
Jumped the crevasse on the glacier going down - and spotted to Spitfire planes over the mountain!! All in all a good and eventful day in the mountain.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2011


Climbed the Steinerweg in a party with Kiss Péter. Wake up 3.30 A.M. Started to climb at 6.20 A.M. and finished a little before 2 P.M.
Very nice day, no problems, climbing fast and considering we had another Hungarian party with us and an Austrian party behind us we had a lot of fun after all. Perfect day. Thank you guys.

Date Climbed: Dec 27, 2008

Alternative goal instead of the Torstein, due to open crevasses on the Gosau glacier and too soft snow on the northern slopes.
Once again with skis. Good weather. Fixed ropes beneath snow, so more exposed than during spring. Beautiful view!

morceauxVia West Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 11, 2008


Perfect weather, lot of snow on the glacier, so the crevasses were hidden well. Perfect conditions on the ridge.

Ski toured up from Krippenbrunn (1.630m) via Simony hut and the Hallstätter glacier to the ski depot below the NE face (app 5 hours). The NE couloir is a short & nice 45° B/C II- mixed climb (100m, 30 min). 1:45 hours ski descent back to Krippenbrunn.

Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2007


Bad snow condition (low snow) was advantage on the summit (final climbing without skis). But skiing down to the Gjaidlam was terrible.:-(

LubosNorth East wall  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 1985


One of my very first mountaineering trips. I was not quite ready for a such glacier and big crevasses since I traveled solo. The whole massif is great for climbing with pretty views.

Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2006


Coming from 'Simonyhütte', we crossed the 'Steinerschart'n' to the
'Gosau' glacier. Then we went up the West Ridge and down on the
normal route over the Northeast Wall back to the 'Hallstätter' glacier.

Climbed the Steiner route with Heiner Micko. Spectacular, huge exposure at the Steiner Ledge. Very exhausted, missed the last cablecar and had to descend the steep, loose face below Hunerscharte.

mccRoute Climbed: Halstatt-Wiesberghaus-Dachstein Date Climbed: 11 May 2002  Sucess!


May is not the best time of year for this , there is a bit too much of melting snow on the way to the Wiesberghaus , so we were constantly falling into hidden holes , but fortunately next day was quite cold and the way up to the summit was stable.

The worst thing was that there are too many unexperienced climbers and they are blocking the way up , and , what is even worse , down. The storm was coming and we were forced to stay on the summit for about two hours , because some group was going really slow , even damaging our ropes with crampons.

My first important summit, a long time ago... I did'nt use the cable car. I climbed over the shoulder and used the normal route to descend.

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2003


Starting at the 'Dachstein Südwandhütte' we took the ascent to 'Hunerscharte', crossed the glacier and climbed on the East Ridge cableroute to the top. It was fine weather but very crowded.

LudRoute Climbed: Johann-East Ridge-Mecklenburg Ledge-NE route Date Climbed: 2002 August  Sucess!


Staring from cablecar station walked up to Johann. After the overhang it was easyer but a long klettersteig. In the middle of the wall two climbers have been rescued just above us (dozens of small stones knocked on my helmet, blown by the helicopter).

Continued on the East ridge/Meklenburg route, summited, and after descent walked to Guttenberg Hütte on trail 674. It was 3 boring hours in hell, I do not reccomend it. Next day backed to the valley.

No ice/snow tools was needed (AUGUST!), on the south side there was no snow, on the glacier the path looked like a highway.

martin184Route Climbed: Northeast wall Date Climbed: 9 July, 2002  Sucess!


From Dachsteinsuedwand cablecar station we went up to the glacier, across the snowfield past the east ridge, then to the rocky wall. The ascent was not difficult, but certain "climbers" made it dangerous due to falling stones and once even someone's rope fell on our heads (luckily covered with helmets)! At 1 p.m. we reached the summit. After a few photos of us (and two diligent ravens, occupying the top) we descended the same way and returned down to Ramsau. After one night in a camp we left the Dachstein region in the direction of Salzburg and home.

piniRoute Climbed: traverse northeast wall/west ridge Date Climbed: July, 23rd 2002  Sucess!


We did the "big traverse" from Hallstadt via Simony hut and down to Adamek hut and Gosau.

The ascent from Hallstadt to Simony hut is a real bitch:

6 hours and 1700 meters height with full glacier equipment (ice axe, crampons and 50 m rope) at the first day of our holidays sucks!

And so does the ascent via the northeast wall/Randkluftsteig if you arrive at the crevasse after 9 o'clock! At this time most of the people coming with the cablecar arrive at the crevasse and the route is crowded with unexperienced people who need hours for the last 200 meters up to the summit!

The crevasse was no problem but the climb was a bit tricky with the heavy backpack and lots of people, some of them throwing stones - so we were glad to have our helmets!

We descended via the west ridge which is much easier than the northeast wall and also not crowded!

We arrived at Adamek hut quite early and so we decided to hike back to Hallstadt - the guidebook said 7,5 hours for the way up, so we thought we could do it down in about 5 hours! NO WAY!!

This is not a normal hiking path but a "marked nopath" through the "Karst" and it took us much longer than we thought! So we took the "shortcut" down to "Obere Seealpe", stayed there overnight and walked the next day to Gosau and took the bus back to Hallstadt.
