A tad sketchy without gear, but worth it  Sucess!

I did feel a little sketched out on certain parts-- we had no gear whatsoever and some people were actually using climbing gear and helmets. Definitely still doable, but just be careful. Views and feeling of achievement at the top were well worth it! Got to sign the massive book at the top.

Fun, but crowded  Sucess!

Climbed by Alpspitz Ferrata and descended via Nordwandsteig. Due to Covid19 large crowds even on a Monday

Fun summit, never seen so much permanent gear set on a summit (ladders and rails)  Sucess!

Didn't used any gear and wasn't too technical, especially with the rails and such. Perfect day and a great view!

Via Ferrata  Sucess!

Despite horrible weather, rain hail sleet and snow we made it to the top. Pretty easy climb with only one area that seems exposed and is often windy. I completed this climb a month earlier solo in perfect conditions.

Via Ferrata  Sucess!

My son, Nick, and I got a bit off-route on the way up and found some fixed ropes to follow. We eventually found the main route (metal cables,etc.). We're both glad we brought along the 'chicken slings'. It was socked in by fog/clouds during much of our time ascending and descending this peak.

Ferrata  Sucess!

A great route to take an aspiring or non-climber. Anything even remotely exposed had either spikes, ladders or cables. Took my wife on this and she thoroughly enjoyed it.

North face via ferrata  Sucess!

Took the tram and climbed to the summit and back in a little under an hour and a half. Later in the day so it was not crowded at all.

Great climb Schöngange - East slope  Sucess!

Walked the first day from the Kreuzeckbahn station up to the Kreuzeckhaus (3h) where we spent the night. Did a short tour in the afternoon to Hochalm-Osterfelderkopf-Kreuzeck. Day two left early and hiked Hochalm-Bergwachthütte-Schöngange klettersteig. Once at the sattel turned left to the Bernardeinkopf first, then turned towards Alpspitze. Went up the Alpspitzrücken east slope, down the other way back to the sattel, down the Schöngange again. Then walked down the Kreuzeckbahn again. Great climb, great views only some clouds and sunny weather only interrupted three times by a short thunderstorm.

Nice trip  Sucess!

We were forced to stop for almost 1 hour in the tunnel half way up due to thunder and lightning - scary with the via Ferrata cables
