Route Climbed: Normal route from Maria Luggau Date Climbed: Sept 24th 2004
Easy but steep ascent through dense forrests to Rauter Alm. From there on exposed to the changing weather. Had to hide from a hail storm in a hay cabin. Found carved inscriptions dating back to 1941. Reached the summit just before the wind turned from west to east and chased us from the mountain.
