Very nice ski tour up the long Hintereisferner. Strong wind at the summit, though it abated enough to let me switch to crampons and axe to go over to the true summit with some grade II climbing. Great visibility all around! The weather window ended as I skied away, clouds dropping rapidly.

I started together with a good friend and a local guide from the Brandenburgerhaus. We crossed the Gepatschferner (only took a more West route instead of going more to the east.), went down the Vernaglwand. After we descended the Vernaglwand we continued on the Langtaufererferner up to the Weisskugeljoch. From this point we crossed the Hintereisferner to the Hintereisjoch. From the Hintereisjoch the last part to the summit through deep but weak snow(it was about +5Celsius)steep up to the ice/snow ridge. On the ridge we had to be carefull because of the 'wechten' (don't know the english translation) they were tricky because of the soft snow. Last part some climbing to the top. A wonderful view over the Alps. We descended following the Hintereisferner in total to the Hochjochhospiz and back to Vent. It took us in total 11.5h, climbing/walking time.

selinunte01Weißkugel summit at last  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2005

selinunte01

I´ve been waiting for this since 1981 !
We took the route from Weißkugelhütte across Langtauferer Ferner and Hintereisjoch. There was a nasty ice slope below Hintereisjoch due to the late season. Great mountain.
Watched some heavy icefall down from Gepatsch Glacier onto Langtauferer Glacier on our way down. Later on there was some heavy rockfall out of Vernaglwände, boulders in the size of little houses came crashing down the slopes. Climate warming has started .....

Date Climbed: Mar 30, 2008
Climbed the Weisskugel via Weißkugelhut, Weisskugeljoch and Hintereisjoch. On the way down we crossed the Matscher, climbed to the Baerenbartjoch and skied down the Baerenbartferner. Nice weather, but strong winds on the summit (Foehn).

landroval360° skyline  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 2, 2006

landroval

We went from Teufelsegg on the ridge and then down the Hintereisferner glacier, towards Hintereisjoch and then up the final slope below the summit.
We climbed the final ridge and reached the summit on foot.
From here we enjoyed a wonderful 360° skyline, all over the Alps.
That was simply amazing.
Very sunny day and great snow... this is a lucky year!


Thanks to Alessandro, Mila and Pietro.

Very good ascent to the peak with clear sky but during the descent it became very foggy and we had to carefully follow our track.

Mainly ice and rocks. Since 2003 there hasn't been a lot of snow on the north ridge in summer.

Alone, from Hochjoch Hospiz, I met half a dozen more mountaineers coming from the N routes, near the top. Fine weather while the sun rose, getting somewhat too cloudy for nice pictures as the morning got to its end.

Gosh this was one of my longest days in my life:

Brandenburger Haus >> Summit via Normal Route >> Weisskugel Hut >> Kauner Valley. Over 25km (only horizontal!) in high alpine terrain. I was really wasted in the end ... but a nice trip

Leaving the hut at 5:15, we saw the mountain in an unusual light before and at sunrise. Good weather, much snow on glaciers and a summit view up to Piz Bernina. The way back to hut in the hot afternoon takes ages, especially after you climb the Vernaglwand. Anyway, the moments on summit are unforgetable.

September 21st 1988 - south route from the Oberettes hut

a nice day in fall, good conditions, pure pleasure



July 25th 1999 - north ridge from Weisskugel hut

It was a splendid day on the most beautiful of the normal routes. Many people on the summit from the different routes. The direct descent via the east side was a bit dangerous because of very soft snow. A perfect weekend trip!
