Robert BradburyRoute Climbed: Mitterkarjoch Date Climbed: 10th July 2004  Sucess!
Started snowing upon leaving Vent, route past Breslauer Hutte and up Mitterkarferner to Mitterkarjoch. Across Taschachferner and upto summit. Visibility for whole climb was poor with high winds especially on the last ascent to the summit. An enjoyable climb although pity about the view from the top (or lack of it). Summitted at 12.15pm.

It was my second attempt. A dream is realy! The snow was good in the morning and we reached the summit at 10 a.m. We had very nice weather on the summit.

Hadn't time to do the North Face afterwards. It is still an beautiful mountain. Perfect view over the Ötztal Alps. Try it and you know what I mean.

RockhopperRoute Climbed: Breslauer hutte / Mitterkarjoch Date Climbed: 22 august 2003  Sucess!


Locals told us the route was more difficult this year. We indeed had to cross a large crevasse at the Mitterkarferner. But otherwise no real difficulties to reach the Mitterkarjoch (some rockfall danger).

As we reached the (south) summit it was partly cloudy. Unfortunately no great views. Traversed to the north summit and back via Rofenkargletscher to the Breslauer hutte. Nice climb.

hoorickjRoute Climbed: Normal route from Vernagt Hutte Date Climbed: 28 aug 2003  Sucess!


Due to the very warm summer, almost no snow was left on the mountain, only ice. Because of stonefall danger on the Mitterkarjoch, we descended over the Rofenkarjoch. Very nice view, rather crowded on the small summit.

Nice climbing in a nice environment.

The climb to the Mitterkarjoch was a real snowslog.

The Austrian guides were gratefull for our exhausting trailbreaking.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2000


A long climb from Brauschweigerhütte, 6 hours to the top. Perfect weather and therefore very crowded on the south summit. Traverse to the (empty) north summit.

gergelyRoute Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: July 13 2003  Sucess!
It was a long and tiring climb from Mittelberg through Taschachhaus. It was my first alpine ice wall and it was much more difficult than I had expected. The wall itself took almost 7 hours for us (twice as the 'official' time), on sometimes unstable blank ice.

Mister White

Very good weather on this long and crowded climb from the Braunschweiger Htt.

Not difficult and a bit boring at times, but still nice. Last meters of rock were the most interesting, with crampons on. Again a super view on the top.

JoPoRoute Climbed: Normal Route from the Pitztal cable car Date Climbed: 30. März 2003  Sucess!


The ascent from the cable car was easy; less than 2.5 h. At the summit it was somewhat crowdy. We skied back via the Taschach-Ferner what was much more exhausing for me than the ascent.

FrankieRoute Climbed: Breslauer Hütte, Mitterkarjoch Date Climbed: 21.07.2000


On a very nice day we tried to climb the summit of the Wildspitze. We did a big mistake. We wanted to go in one day. So we reached the Mitterkarjoch at "High Noon". In this time the snow is very softly. Most of the summit climbers did already the way back. So we enjoyed the beautiful view to the mountains arround us. We would take to the summit only 0,75 hours!

We'll be back again some day - then we'll reach the summit!

Nice, easy climb!

Ötztal is one of the most beautiful valley in Austria. A more day tracking in Ötztal is suggested, linking the climb of Wildspitze with the climb of Weisskugel.

LuidgerRoute Climbed: Normal route from Breslauer Hut Date Climbed: 09/12/1999  Sucess!


From Breslauer Hut via Mitterkarferner to Mitterkarjoch and via Tachaschferner and the west ridge to the summit.

Perfect day.

UliRoute Climbed: North-East-Ridge (from Breslauer Hut) Date Climbed: Aug. 14, 1999  Sucess!


A great climb. We were alone on the North Summit watching the crowds on the usually climbed South Summit. Unfortunately a very famous and therefore a highly frequented but still impressing peak. There are a lot of interesting routes.
