Started at 4.30 a.m. from Tabaretta hutte, summited around noon. Tricky icy passages in the upper part of Barenloch. Generally quite nice.

Climbed the Hintergrat together with Maarten and Veit. Until the first snowfield thick fog and no visibility. At the first snowfield, at Sunrise, the weather cleared, offering us fantastic views. We descended along the normal route back to Sulden.
A very fine tour & one of the best in the Eastern Alps.

Climbed Ortler with my son Christoph (and local guide David) on the day following a mid-summer snowstorm. We used crampons on the lower rocky parts but had excellent snow conditions on the upper glacier sections. Very cold & windy at the summit but the views were spectacular. A highly recommended climb with a very welcoming, family-run Payer hut situated on a rocky promontory!

Good conditions. Good hard firn up to the "Gurgel" were we put on the rope. From there in good ice conditions we partly simul-climbed with four belay points on the way to rest and exchange gear. Start at Tabaretta Hut 4am, summit 10am back in Sulden 4pm.
Long and nervy descent via Payer Hut and Tabaretta Hut.

I could imagine this would be a great route for its grade if there weren't hundred people on it everyday...

we had quite cloudy and snow weather, but the climb was very nice - I enjoyed it very much. We stayed at bivac and went down normal route second day - the weather totally changed overnight so we could enjoy the perfect view..

Dan P. and I climbed the North Face in a long but rewarding day. We had whiteout conditions on the summit, unfortunately, and some excitement using map and compass to find our way north on the normal route.

We ascended Ortler via normal route with the base at Tabarettahuette with the club Euthanasia (www.euthanasia.cz). We ascended it on the same day, as was the 204th anniversary of the first ascend on Ortler. We had cloud inversion and saw brocken spectre of ours at Tschirfeck part. I just came, happy to be back alive. Snow made the ridge very tricky and a one guy in our group could have paid with his life for it. I'm too tired to write more or to post photos. You will have to wait some days/hours to see them.

Very impressive but long trip. "Bianco ridge" in upper part had almost vanished. However, glacier descent astonishingly ok albeit non-freezing temperatures at 4000m 24h per day, and blank glacier with thick waterfalls close to the track.
