|Michael Graupe||Via Aflenzer Staritzen |
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2012
|From Seebergsattel climbed Aflenzer Staritzen, then Hohe Weichsel and Ringkamp before making it to the top of Hochschwab. Descended via Voisthaler Huette to Seewiesen. Couldn't catch a ride back up to Seebergsattel, so had to walk up for an additional hour. About 11h car-to-car.|

|I've conquered this summit twice.|
First time it was in November, 2004. We startedfrom Seewiesen, and went to the "Unterstandsütte" on Mitteralpe (it is marked on the F&B map). We thought it was an ordinary hut, but it appeared to be a simple rain shelter only. The rain was falling, so it was a help anyway, but not the best place for overnighting. Next day we went to Voisthaler Hütte, Trawiessattel, G'hackte, all the way in heavy rain. Finally we reached the Fleischer-Biwak, which was already full with about 6 or 8 Slovakians. We had a rest there, and proceeded to Schiestl Haus to spend the night. Next morning I visited the summit in total fog, and later we went down to Seewiesen on the normal route.
Next March I was there again with three students of mine. We went from Seewiesen to the Voisthaler Hütte, and slept there in the winterraum. Next day we visited the summit, which was a little bit hard without ski, and returned to the hut. This time the weather was perfect.

|dedo||Route Climbed: Zwischen Kamin und Kante / Großer Beilstein Date Climbed: 27th July 2005|
|We had a wonderful day here - alone. It is a nice classical route in 6th grade, some pitons and BH, good opportunities to place your pro in the easier parts. Left our rucksacks at the base: climbing south walls the 3rd day in hot weather (38 degree Celsius in Vienna), we didn't need water anymore. :)|
And it probably was dehydratation that in the 4th pitch, I headed perhaps too much to the right, found no belay and followed the pitons of some difficult foolness. After 50m I couldn't move any further due to rope friction and did a belay in a small hole (Sanduhr). The rest was O.K., just the belay after the 1st pitch is really poor. And the descent is a small story for itself, as one has to abseil 2-3 times, at last through a water canyon. But after being in the sun so long, one is even thankful for it.
As I said, we had a wonderful day here. Really.

|Andrzej Gibasiewicz||Route Climbed: from Seebergsattel Date Climbed: September 1983|
|Very long, but beautiful hike with perfect weather on the first day. From Aflenz to Seebergsattel by bus, then on the ridge of the Aflenzer Staritzen to the Schiestlhaus.|
On the next day a sudden fall of temperature, bad weather with rain, strong winds and short thunderstorm caused a very fast descent through the Fölzalm to the bottom of valley

|We took our time and made it in 2 days up there. A great place for beginners. Since it's so close to Hungary, it seems that this one is especially popular among Hungarians: we met Zsolt Erõss, first Hungarian on MtEverest in the Bodenbauer Hut. By the way, I find Lud's homepage very helpful and quite unique on the Hungarian Web.|

|Lud||Route Climbed: From Bodenbauer via "G'hackte" Date Climbed: Sept 1999|
|We left the car at Bodenbauer, and passed Ghackte and the light klettersteig above. We camped near the Fleischer bivac, and walked up to the summit to enjoy the rising sun and the full moon on the other side of the sky. On the way back we visited the Sackwiesensee.|
An easy, but lovely trip.
