eje138South Normal Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2008


Climbed from Defreggerhaus in great weather. Consequently the route and the summit was quite crowded. Descended to the vilage the same afternoon just in time to avoid the incoming storm.

Did this one with my dad when I was about 12. I can remember being scared to take a pee. Apart from that, it was pretty easy.

samanTwo times from Defreggerhaus  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 23, 2001


My first ascent was in July, 1995. We had a perfect weather and as we got up very early in the morning, there weren't crowd on the summit.

In 2001 we went there again to spend our 4-days long weekend in October. That time we weren't so lucky with the weather. At the first attempt we walked in heavy snowfall and fog, and soon returned to the Defregger Haus. Next day it was a little better, the clouds rose to 3400 m, so our only problem was that there was no path to follow. We made a new track in the snow, trying to avoid the fissures of the glacier. At Rainertörl we reached the clouds, and proceeded with the help of my compass: I knew that the summit is NW from there, and we followed that direction, and sometimes corrected a little to the steepest ascent. We didn't see anything, just the next one on the rope. Finally we glanced the summit cross from about 8 meters. It was so cold, that the sensor button of my camera didn't want to work, I had to breathe warm air to my fingr and to the button to launch it:)
Anyway, at least it was a memorable tour...

Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2008


Climbed in two days. We slept in Defreggerhaus.

Conditions were good. Very long trail on the glacier, fresh snow, beautiful view everywhere and heavy winds on the last ridge and on the summit. Many people on the way.

Wonderful mountain!

I climbed with Sene. It was cold an awful night in the winterraum. I slept 2-3 hours. Started at half past five. We reached the summit after two and a half hour climbing. There was perfect weather and good view and was big crowd on the top. After we climbed the Rainer Horn. Very nice and unforgettable tour.

In this day the weather was perfect, but the route couldn't seen at all because of the fresh snow. So we had to be careful.
It was a long walk, but we reached the top at 10am.

I made this summit with my friend Boris. The ascent and descent takes 2 days. We slept at the winter-room „Defregger hutte(2950m)“
and the next day over the glacier and summited. It was a nice weather. The ascent is all the way walk up, not technical but a long walk days.

morceauxEast route up - South route down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2006


We had perfect weather, good glacier conditions, and lots of people... It was a fantastic trip, we climbed via eastern route, sleeping at Neue Prager Hütte, and descended via southern route. We could see beautiful landscapes through the crystal clear sky.

petehazRoute Climbed: From the east Date Climbed: 13th July 2005  Sucess!
We arrived in Austria to torrential rain, land slides had blocked some of the roads and we were feeling positively peeved at the prospect of having to abandon the climb. After a night of drowning sorrows in the Matreier Tauernhaus we set off none the less to see if the weather would improve and reached Neue Prager Hutte in the early afternoon of the 12th July. There was deep snow, a bad sign not only for trail breaking but also in terms of steering clear of hidden crevasses along the glacier.

On the morning of 13th July we were greeted with fantasic weather and decided to push on to the summit. The trek was exhausting as there was 2ft of fresh snow but fortunately we didn't run into any crevasse problems and summited early afternoon. The trek took us 6 hours, double the time normally taken for this route.

After greeting some fellow climbers at the summit (who had used our tracks) we descened for a well earned and exceedingly tasty steak in the Neue Prager Hutte.

Nice glacier route up from the Neuer Prager Hut. The weather was cold and windy. The cloud cleared on the summit ridge which was great!

frombelowsealevelRoute Climbed: Normal route from Defregger Date Climbed: August 4  Sucess!
Walked from camping in Hinterbichl to Defreggerhaus via Johannishutte. Not taking one of the many taxis. Woke up at 4am to be ahead of big masses. Easy climb (walk actually) up to the summit. Very cold at summit and misty, so no view at all. Then continued to Rainer Horn, Schwarze Wand and Hoher Zaun. Nice tour!!

tiefenthalerRoute Climbed: Skitour from Neukirchen Date Climbed: 27 December 1988  Sucess!


Started in Neukirchen in the morning and arrived at the summit half an hour before sunset. Skied down and reached the Kürsingerhütte with the last daylight. Spent a beautiful night there (with fresh trout and red wine). Climbed the Schlieferspitze the next day. Phantastic "Christmas break", nobody except us was in the Obersulzbachtal.
