Normal route from the Wiesbadener Hütte Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2013
With a long day ahead, we started just before 6 am at the Wiesbadener Hütte. Conditions were fine and initially the weather was perfect, making it an easy scramble. As we approached the summit, it was still mostly sunny, but some darker clouds where building up in the south. The weather forecast said there was a chance of thunderstorms developing, so we didn't stay on the summit long, but moved on quickly, for we still had a long way to go to the Saarbrücker Hütte.
Route Climbed: south ridge Date Climbed: August 29th 1998
From Klostertaler hut (not guided) we crossed Rote Furka pass to Silvretta glacier and climbed the SWflank directly to the south ridge (some danger of rockfall but not as ugly as expected). We reached the summit via the south ridge. Then back on the south ridge to northern Egghornluecke pass. From there we traversed Ochsentaler glacier to Fuorcla dal Cunfin pass (dangerous crevasses) and descended via Plan Rai glacier to Tuoi hut in Switzerland. Nice trip where you can enjoy much of the central Silvretta!
