nice and long tour, took the direct path (WSW, some ropes) from the glacier. Took the (long) SSW ridge for descent.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2007


Traverse over beautiful Ruderhofferner (up) and "normal route" (i.e. via Alpeiner Ferner to Franz-Senn-hut) down.
Started 14th at Regensburger hut, bivied in upper Ruderhof at ~2780m, ascent 6:30 to 10 o'clock about (early ascent essential because of early rockfall).
Happy conditions because flawless weather after a period of cold and snowfall.

A demanding and very rewarding climb on skis, with Wolfgang. There's a very steep bit between 3,100 and 3,200 m. We had to take off the skis there.

As Thomas describes in his log. If icy this quite steep slope is not for beginners on ski. I have seen pictures of this slope from 1960 where it seemed to be much easier (i.e. there was only snow but no rock). The small glacier has melt a lot the last decades.

Added June 2004: Failed 300m below summit end of May 2004. Too dangerous this time due to much snow this year (avalanches). Seems the small upper glacier has melt a lot the last decadeand has become less steep today.

From Franz-Senn-Hut to the glacier we didn't meet anyone. Later a few people, but nothing compared to the crowds on more famous Stubai peaks.

Conditions on the glacier were a bit icy and in the afternoon, lots of small streams of water were running on the ice surface. The ridge was snow free.
