normal route from Priel Schutzhaus Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2011
Tiring but rewarding climb in splendid weather. Being comfortable with steel cables and exposition is required for the ferrata (something like A/B) below Brotfallscharte, and the ridge between the foresummit and the main summit. The view from the peak is really broad!
Previous day I saw a lot of snow up there from the neighbouring mountain. As I was alone, I planned to leave others who would start from the hut to go ahead. So, I started from the valley, from Hinterstoder early, came to the hut when the majority already departed, but soon my plan was spoiled. After another hour or two I took over almost all of them, only a young pair was still climbing on Brotfallscharte ahead of me. On the fore-summit we were together and on the summit we were the first ones by the normal route. Yet, a few fast guys came up by ferrata before us. Because of snow and of course no winter equipment the ascent was not easy. The same day I did the same 2000 meters of the descent too.
