Winter ascent. Parked in Konigsee and hiked up to the Watzmannhaus. Winterraum was open but Jan thought it was far too comfy with its beds, fireplace and blankets so we moved on. Slogged up the shadow of the mountain to the little Schutzehutte on the summit. Stuck there from sunset after 1700 to dawn at 0700. Thank Christ we brought whiskey.

Its more of an emergency one, three little benches inside it and a table. Cold, cold, cold. Worth it! Didn't meet other mountaineers till the next day.

Headed up to the Watzmannhaus in a couple of hours arriving at 20 00. They appearred to be a bit annoyed by the late resevationless arrival. Teaming up with some Austrians, met on the way up, made a late start. This ment getting stuck behind hundreds of fat scared Germans getting great valve from their brand new Via Ferrata kit. Despite leaving the hutte at sunrise did not get to the Sudspitze until 13:00. Great views on a an extremely clear and warm day. The scree desent to Weimbachtal was the trickiest part of the massif. Through the Deaddog Gallery to the Inglostadter hutte arriving about 18:30, a little bit delirious (heat, length of walk and pounding from the Rock under foot).

I slept the day before in the Watzmannhaus. It ran the day before in the afternoon and night, but in the morning the rock was dry. I climbed the Hocheck, Mittelspitz and Südspitze and descended to Wimbachgrieshütte. It was a wonderful trip for me and in nice weather.

I had slept in the Watzmannhaus, and then went up to the Hocheck summit in the early morning. Short, easy hike. Some snow on the trail already. Decided not to continue to the mittelspitze as I did't have any gear with me and it seemed to have ice on it on the steeper parts. Went down to Ramsau and up the Blaueishut where I climbed Hochkalter the next day.

Together with a friend we rushed up and down to Hocheck from the parking lot at Wimbachgrießbrücke in 9 hours. Great day with great weather.

In 1993, on July 1st or 2nd, I went as far as Hocheck on a splendid day - the afternoon colors were beautiful when I arrived at the summit. In 1994 I did the Mittelspitze, by the normal route via Watzmannhaus as well. The weather wasn't quite so glorious this time.

The two of us started at the Wimbachbruecke at 4am and reached the Watzmannhaus at 6.30 am - just on time to have a headstart on the crowds that started from there. Traversed Hocheck, Mittelspitze and reached Suedspitze at 9.40am. The descent to Wimbachgrieshuette is not all that pleasant. The upper part has plenty of loose rock while the trail in the lower part was partially destroyed by water. The 12k stroll back to Wimbachbruecke was very nice again and didn't feel as long as I thought it would.

Dayhiked the traverse Wimbachbruecke - Watzmannhaus - Hocheck - Mittel - Suedspitze - Wimbachgrieshuette - Wimbachbruecke. Sunny day with clouds drifting up from the E-face made for a spectacular scenery.

Wonderful walk at best conditions. Much too windy for going further to the Mittelspitze.

Went up to the Watzmannhaus with my mother and father in August and dropped mom off there. Dad and I continued on to Hocheck but because of the time didn't move across to the Mittel or Sudspitze. Clouds were covering the summit most of the way but we broke out as we got up top for a little. Mittelspitze looked amazing with a fresh dusting of a couple of inches of snow (in August!). Good day.

very fine day, good conditions but _very_ many people on the route. Between Mittelspitze and Suedspitze the sole did not stick to my boots any more so I was lucky to reach the valley with some improvisation.
