|pino||Route Climbed: Glocknerkamp Date Climbed: 3 September 2005|
|One of the most interesting climbs I ever made - valley glacier, steep ascending on morrain, glacier again, some snow, few beers in at Erzherzog-Johann hutte, some nice and easy climbing and there we were :-))|
Beautiful weather, picturesque views from the top.
Descending via Leitertal - long, tiring but beautiful.
The only negative experience - austrian guides rushing unexperienced and tired hikers near the summit along our group with stupid comments (to us), traffic jams near the summit.

|Very nice route, when there are not to many people in it. Descending the normal route is terrible, its busier then the traffic around Munich at 8.00 o'clock!!!!! |

|Started climb round 7am from Studlhutte. Reached Adlersruhe in 1,5 hours over Kodnitzkees. From there in 2 hours to the summit. Wasn't as crowded as expected, but still some delay at Glocknerscharte. Unfortunately summit was misty, so no great view from Austria's highest. Wasn't lucky that week, while on Grossvenediger no sign of Glockner and now vice versa. Back in ErzHerzogJohanhutte round midday. Stayed there overnight, to walk back to Lucknerhaus next day. About 5cm snow during night, nice for photos.|

|Benno||Route Climbed: Normal route Date Climbed: 21st August 2003|
Route: Departing at Lucknerhaus (1918m) at 6:00, reaching summit (3798m) at around 13:00, staying 45min, returning to Lucknerhaus parking lot at around 20:00.
After trying to summit Grossglockner solo and in a single day in October 2002, where I turned around 40 m below Kleinglockner I achieved the goal one year later in the great summer of 2003. After reaching the summit I was there for about 15 minutes totally by myself with perfect blue sky before the next crowds moved in. During the descent on the ridge below Adlersruhe there was a thunderstorm passing through. Because of many roped parties moving slowly, descending fast was impossible. Nevertheless I returned safely after having had a great day.

|Very nice climb. Weather was a little bit cloudy during the ascent but when we reached the summit it cleared. We climbed via Stüddlehütte. Quite easy and enjoyable climb!|

|We made it under perfect weather conditions in 3 hours from the saddle (Luisenscharte). Great views on Venediger- and Reiseferner-gruppe. Many people there. Surprisingly, no snow on the ridge, even on the normal route and in the saddle between the summit and Klein Glockner.|

toward the end. It took to me and my wife Annica 13 hours to finished!

|mpa||Normal route with ski |
Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2003
|From Lucknerhaus to Erzherzog Johann Hutte with ski, the traverse with crampons (a very hard 1900hm day trip)|
Weather was cloudy, partly light snowfall, sun at the top. Thanks to Sigi for the motivation to continue the climb !

|Lud||Route Climbed: Normal from Studlhutte Date Climbed: May 1998|
|We went up from Lucknerhaus directly to Erzherzog Johann Hutte, and the next day to Kleinglockner, but bad weather forced us to return. In the fog and the drifting snow the sound of the house's bell lead us back to the hut. After an hour rest, in the deep snow we struggled down to Lucknerhaus. That was my most tiring climb ever.|
In Dec-2000 we made another try but reached only the Studlhutte, and climbed the peak above the Hut.
I hope one day I will summit via Studlgrat, or Pallavicini route.

|PeterCorneliusSpaeth||Route Climbed: 'Stuedlgrat' ridge Date Climbed: Summer 1998|
|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.|

|Uli||Route Climbed: Ski ascent - normal route from Kals (Lucknerhaus) Date Climbed: March 17, 2002|
|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.
