Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2007
|We left the car at 6:30 am, and were at the Steudlhuette at 8 am for a nice breakfast. On the summit at 2:00, and back at the car at 8:30 pm. Really fun climb and beautiful weather. The only gripe was that I had an altitude headache and a bit of nausea until we got down a ways.|

|Lubos||Erzherzog Johann Hutte |
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 1986
|I climbed this route via Erzherzög Johann Hütte in 1986. It is a great glacier travel route but must be very crowded these days. Accessible for almost everybody with some mountaineering experience. Solo climb.|

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2006
|Climbed via the normal route on a guided trip. We moved FAST past the roped parties. "Don´t sleep on the mountain" our guide told other climbers as they struggled up. Being short roped our party moved faster, although it didn´t feel 100% safe. But it was cool. After this I would not have a problem going up solo on a good weather day.|

|Dan Bailey||route: normal|
|Beautiful easy route on a beautiful mountain. Shame about the crowds, but with a route this good on such a major peak what would you expect? Get up early - we had the summit to ourselves for ages before the next groups arrived.|

|Joerg Marretsch||Normal Route |
Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2006

|tuan walter||Grossglockner In One Day |
Date Climbed: May 1, 2006
|Route climbed: standard ski route, i.e. from the car park near Lucknerhaus (1,918 m) via Lucknerhuette (2,241 m) and Koednitzkees to the Glocknerleitl (6 hours) + standard route to the summit, i.e. via Glocknerleitl, Kleinglockner, and Obere Glocknerscharte |
Great ski tour and climb with Wolfgang! We did it all in one day: 3 hours drive from Schwaz - 6 hours ascent to the Glocknerleitl, where we left the skis - half an hour's rest - 2,5 hours climb to the top.
If you do the final ascent to the top in the afternoon, the crowd has already left and there is no jam at Obere Glocknerscharte.

Date Climbed: Apr 9, 2006
|This peak has a frightening "presence": tough, shaped, massive... it crawls in your mind and behind your eyes and its image is fixed in your memories forever.|
Amazing, wonderful day.

|The route was crowded, especially on the final ridge. Ropes got tangled quite often. It was cloudy most of the time but the wind was not particularly strong. We had to take the route through Salmhuette because the upper glacier was in pretty bad condition, with lots of open crevasses.|

|Sebastian Hamm||Route Climbed: Normal Route via Erzherzog Johann Hut and Stuedl-Hut Date Climbed: 24th August 2005|
|Great climbing, we reach the summit on sunset and avert so the big wave of mountaineers in the morning. Great snow-conditions despite the heavy rainfall in austria these days with the big flood in Aug05.|

|Very good climbing, we reach the peak from the hut in three hours, not bad. Stuedelhutte is graet and the food excellent!|

|With good conditions I climbed with Carly and Bart the Berglerinne. On the ridge the conditions were hard! Much snow, so that took us a lot of time. A great climb!|

|jck||Five times:Normal (2008), Gröger-Rinne (2010), Normal (2008), Stuedlgrat (2007), Hoffmansweg (2005)|
|Been on the top four times. Had also two unsuccesfull attempts.|
Normal- 24 September 2012
T-storm around EJH. Bad weather made the summit ridge not really crowded. Glocknerleitl filled with mud... No views from the top.
Gröger-Rinne- 14 October 2010
Radek (brade) and me finally climbed the route in perfect weather. Some icy and rocky passages in the couloir itself, good snow conditions on the traverse. Topped out following the North-West ridge: snow cover made some passages a little bit more exciting. Generally: more difficult than Stuedlgrat, worth recommendation.
Pallavicinirinne- 11-13 June 2009 (unsuccesfull attempt)
Radek (brade) and me reached to Glockner Bivak after 7 hours of climbing. Deep snow, no traces, crevasses. Spent two nights in the bivak with some tries to reach to base of the couloir. Descended to FJH in snowstorm on saturday morning.
Normal from Stuedl Hut (ski route)- 4 May 2008
Climbed the route solo, following the skiers. Tiring because of melted snow /much easier with skies/. Suprisingly good conditions on the summit ridge: didn't use the rope I had in my backpack, only crampones and two ice axes.
Gröger-Rinne- 4 May 2008 (unsuccesfull attempt)
Radek (brade) and me tried the route, but had to get back because of really nasty snow conditions. We reached about 3300 m. Later that day I got down and climbed the normal route.
Stuedlgrat- 15 August 2007
Climbed with Radek (brade). Fantastic route, solid rock, good snow conditions. Very overcrowded- about 50 people climbing the ridge, many parties shouldn't be there. Guides take people who even don't know how to use a rope- horrible (if they are above you try to overcome them as fast as possible!). Spent much time waiting. Very bad snow conditions in Glocknerteil (muddy- never been so filthy), to many people- very dangerous!
Overall- superb but the crowds kill the fun of climbing.
Hoffmansweg- 12 August 2005
We left Hoffmanhutte about midday and in the afternoon reached Erzherzog Johann Hutte and there spent a night in tent-it's forbidden but we climbed a little above the hut and there it was no problem. After snowy and cold night we reached the summit about 9 am in great weather. Summit ridge was very crowded- spent much time waiting. Descending the same route.

|aquariusz||Route Climbed: Normal route from Kals Date Climbed: 2005 june|
|I climbed the peak with one of my friend from Kals in two days. Due to bad weather and my aching knee we tented on the glacier below the Erherzog Johannes Hütte and on the next day we reached the peak. It is a beautiful route and mountain so I can recommend it to everyone :)|

|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.
