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

tiefenthaler

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.

BennoRoute Climbed: North route: Kürsinger Hut - Col - Grossvenediger summit - Kürsinger Hut Date Climbed: 16 th August 2003  Sucess!

Benno

We (a group of seven) hiked up to Kürsinger Hut (2558m) from Postalm (1699m) on 14th of August. On 15th we summited Keeskogel (3297m) as a preparatory tour. On 16th we summited Grossvenediger (3662m) via the Col between the Klein- and the Grossvenediger and hiked down to the valley the following day. These two were the first 3000ers I summited. They served also as an acclimatization preparation for my Grossglockner solo tour five days later.

Easy walk to the summit. Only the last meters went over a razor sharp ridge. It's a 5 hour's round-trip from the Defreggerhaus. We had reasonable weather and a good view on the summit.

Starting from the parking lot near the Matreier Tauernhaus we went up to the Neue Prager Hütte. The next day we head to the summit at 12:00 and reached around 17:30. It was totally dark, and the GPS saved us from falling into one of the deep and long crevasses. On the top there we have seen an exceptional natural phenomenon: the spectre of Brücken - a rainbow glory around our shadows formed on the mist below.

Walked up from the Defreggerhaus (and back afterwards). Easy, almost no crevasses seen, but cold and windy. About 6 hours round-trip time.

Due to very bad weather (snowfall, no visibility) we had to turn around at about 3400 m on the Obere Keesboden of Schlatenkees. Easy, but crevassed glacier ascent.

VelebitRoute Climbed: Eastern route - via Neue Prager Hutte Date Climbed: 4th of August 2002  Sucess!

Velebit

On 3rd of August 18 of us came from Zagreb to Venedigerhaus at Innergschloss, in the afternoon hours. We immediately started the ascent towards Neue Prager Hutte and reached it in some 3.30h, just at sunset time. This is very beautiful path with excellent views on many waterfalls, which thunder down to valley, Kristallwand (3310m), Hoher Zaun (3467m), Schwarze Wand (3511m) and many more of beautiful Hohe Tauern peaks and especially Schlaten Kees glacier. I agree with Lezlee that Apfelstrudel in the Neue Prager Hutte is a "must try" :-) It is pity that there wasn't anymore when we returned from the top next day.



In the morning it was raining and weather was not promising at all. After rain had stopped we decided to go. It was around 8 am and cloudy. After an hour long scramble over the boulders and snow fields we reached the glacier where we put on crampons and roped our selves in three's. From here most interesting part of the Venediger ascent begins. For the next hour and a half we went over and around many crevasses till we reached Oberer Keesboden, all the time with fantastic views of clouds deep bellow us. It was amazing, weather was improving all the time so my digital camera spent most of it in my hands. At this point clouds started to break, showing blue sky's above and shining Rainer Horn (3559m). After 4 hours we reached the summit. Last 20 meters were lot of fun, walking over razor sharp (50 cm wide) drift with both sides falling into infinity :-) For the next hour we were enjoying beautiful views on all sides. On the way down to Neue Prager Hutte snow shower passed over us. It was an amazing day, high up in the Austrian Alps.



Rain was falling all night, preparing an excellent morning. Just as we got up at 6 am clouds, painted in sunrise colors, started to break and we had beautiful view at Gross Glockner. We descended to valley under clear blue sky, admiring again Schlaten Kees glacier and looking back all the time at Kleinvenediger (3471m) and the route we did yesterday.

lezleeRoute Climbed: east rout Date Climbed: 30 July 2002  Sucess!
Nice glacier walk.

Over 3000 m we had beautiful sunshine. The view over the clouded valleys with peaks like Grossglockner made this trip really enjoyable.

The Apfelstrudel in the Neue Prager Hutte is a "must try" dish! :-)

thomas.schmeidlRoute Climbed: Bike&Ski from Neukirchen Date Climbed: May 1994  Sucess!

thomas.schmeidl

Started at 4.a.m with the bike from Neukirchen.

Reached the summit on ski at 10 a.m.



I was the only summitter that day, as the weather deteriorated and all the climbers on Kürsinger Hütte got up too late...

PeterCorneliusSpaethRoute Climbed: South East Route from Defreggerhaus Date Climbed: Summer 1998  Sucess!

Short and easy glacier walk. Only the last meters are a bit exposed. Venediger is - like Glockner - very crowded, on most routes. We experienced that a lot of people see mountains like this as 'must have been there'. To most of them it was more important to summit than to look after the guy that broke his shoulder 50m below the track. One of the reasons I preferr less wanted routes. I think Venediger is more interesting as ski route in late spring.

Mathias Zehring

July 29th 1985 - east route

the "classical way" with a 20-person-group of the german alpine club. We planned to do the south east route but changed because of bad weather at that day. During descent one of us fell into a crevasse and it took 1 hour to bring him back on the surface



August 10th 1994 - east route

last day of a nice 5-day-hiking-tour through the Granatspitz group and Venediger group.We left the Prager hut before usual breakfast and were at 8 o'clock on top with still nice weather. There I took my first and my last gulp of "Red Bull"



May 9th 1997 - north route with ski

started at nice weather after 50 cm new snow the day before. At the Oberer Gletscherboden weather changed surprisingly and rapidly. We turned without crossing the last summit ridge in heavy storm and had some difficulties to find back to the Venediger-Scharte. An old climber we had met had exactly forecasted this developement. This was Markus Schmuck, first climber of the Broad Peak!
