PeterCorneliusSpaethRoute Climbed: 'Stuedlgrat' ridge Date Climbed: Summer 1998  Sucess!


I can recommend this route, except when there are icy conditions. I cannot recommend to enter the ridge early (boring, bad rock), better stay as long as possible on the glacier to the left. As described in the route section. The 'Stuedl' route is not so crowded as the normal route and there are ways to overtake others or let them pass. Which is contrary to the normal route with sometimes chaotic scenes. Some time ago there have been 'Schweineschwaenze' (pig tails) on the ridge you could link the the rope in without biners. Speeds you up a lot and you run simultaniously. But I have heard they have been destroyed ?? If you are a good climber you will need the rope only on some pitches.

UliRoute Climbed: Ski ascent - normal route from Kals (Lucknerhaus) Date Climbed: March 17, 2002  Sucess!


A great ski-mountaineering weekend. Best snow conditions from the top down to the Lucknerhaus parking lot. On Saturday coming from Munich we climbed up to Stuedlhut for the night. The next day via the Koednitzkees directly to the Glocknerleitl and further up to the rock climbing passage. From there without skis to the summit. Descent on the same route.

Even at this time of the year you have to share this peak with a lot of other co-summitters.

already some snow on the shadow side of the ridge, but good conditions with great weather. My friend and I we belayed almost every part of the climb, so it took us the whole day untill we came back to the Stuedl hut. As the Hohe Tauern and especially Grossglockner are the mountains I like most, this was a great experience for me. Pure ice at the descent at the Glocknerleitl.

LuidgerRoute Climbed: Normal route Date Climbed: 08/28/1999  Sucess!


Originally, we planned to climb the Stüdl ridge. Because of unstable weather, we changed plans and did the normal route with an interesting variation. From Stüdl Hut to Ködnitzkees. From the Ködnitzkees we climbed via a steep snow slope directly to the Glocknerleitl (thereby circumventing the Erzherzog-Johann-Hut on the Adlersruhe).
