|Rockhopper||Route Climbed: Breslauer hutte / Mitterkarjoch Date Climbed: 22 august 2003|
|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.

|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.

|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.|

|gergely||Route Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: July 13 2003|
|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||Route Climbed: "Guide route"= partially normal route Date Climbed: 22 juli 2001|
|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.

|JoPo||Route Climbed: Normal Route from the Pitztal cable car Date Climbed: 30. März 2003|
|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.|

|Frankie||Route 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.

|Uli||Route Climbed: North-East-Ridge (from Breslauer Hut) Date Climbed: Aug. 14, 1999|
|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.|
