PaulKRoute: Up via Oetztaler Urkund, down via Rofenkarferner  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2014
Went up with guide from Breslauer hutte via Urkundholm (3150), Oetztaler Urkund (3450), then traverse to Wildspitze East wall, up a couloir, and then rock/snow to summit (4.5 hrs). Class II-III. Lots of snow. Some very exposed sections. We were the only ones on this not so common route. Down via one of the common routes: North Summit, to Taschenferner, then via Point 3550 to Rofenkarferner (3.5 hrs).

Back in 2004, the Wildspitze was my first glacier climb, then by the normal route from the Vernagthütte and back.

This time we climbed the North wall and descended the normal route back to the Breslauerhütte, and further down to Vent.

We took the route from Vernagthütte via the kleiner Vernagtferner and the Brochkogeljoch 3423m. Further over the Taschachferner and the normal route to the southern top. There was about 30cm of fresh snow on the glaciers which made some crevasses invisible. The weather was extremely good, sunny and very bright air giving a superb panoramic view on almost the whole Eastern Alps. A better view was not possible according local mountain guides because we could see the Piz Tödi of 3614m in the Glarus Alps (Switzerland), which is a view of 148km/92miles. Our Austrian guides told me that in recent years the chance on this kind of excellent weather is greater in september than in july/august, mainly because of the colder nights in september. Descend route was the same as ascend, we used crampons because of the fresh snow until we reached the glacier. Long but easy tour.

nlafeversFrom Rofen  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 10, 2011
I parked at the lot in the tiny village of Rofen (2014 m) and started hiking at 2:15 a.m. with the temperature at 39 degrees F. Following the trail, I reached the Vernagthutte (2755 m) at 4:45 a.m., where the temperature was 31 degrees F. I reached the south summit (3770 m) at 9:45 a.m. with a temperature of 16 degrees F not considering chill from roughly 20 mph wind. Along the route above 2800 meters the wind stayed moderate and steady out of the north. Below about 2300 meters there was little snow left, and above that it was all neve, but with avalanche danger rising to moderate in the afternoon on steep slopes. I returned to Rofen at 1:00 p.m. and by then the temperature down there had risen to 62 degrees F.

We did the Traverse Route:
Breslauer Hut - Mitterkarjoch - Wildspitze South Summit - Wildspitze North Summit - Rofenkarferner - Breslauer Hut

First to summit that day, we had to summit early because the weather predictions were very bad! At the summit a little cloudy but still great views. Later that day while descending back to Vent from Breslauer Hut a big Thunderstorm broke out. So we were glad we were already almost down in the valley.

After we did the Mainzer Hohenweg the day before, we started to climb from the Braunschweigerhütte to the Wildspitze. We took the normal route over the Piztaler Joch, the Tasachferner and straight up to the Mitterkarjoch to acces the normalroute from the Breslauerhütte to the summit. Due to bad conditions (too much snow) the guide decided to take the same way back but to the Breslauerhütte, instead of descending over the Rofenkarferner to the Breslauerhütte. The tour wasn't as heavy as the Mainzer Hohenweg, but because of the large amounts of snow it took us about 11.5 hours in total. (Braunschweigerhütte-Wildspitze-Breslauerhütte-Vent)

It was my second peak in the Alps. I went there by normal route from Breslauer Hutte. And when I went down I got a long uncontrolled snow ride down the couloir from Mitterkarjoch due to a melting snow. I have a scar on my forearm till now!

I climbed both summits three times; in summer from Breslauer Hütte and from Taschachhaus, traversing Petersenspitze and in spring from Vernagthütte with skies.
Great summit!

Beautiful trip, fairly easy, even via the unusual NW ridge.
Great view, clear sky, just a perfect mountain day!
