Beautiful Alps  Sucess!

Yes we were successful and really happy that we made it!!! August is perfect for us. The weather was not to hot in the mountains, no snow, but some glacier. Don't forget to check out the Hallstatt if you are in that area, so beautiful.

Steinerweg   Sucess!

Climbed the Steinerweg in a party with Kiss Péter. Wake up 3.30 A.M. Started to climb at 6.20 A.M. and finished a little before 2 P.M.
Very nice day, no problems, climbing fast and considering we had another Hungarian party with us and an Austrian party behind us we had a lot of fun after all. Perfect day! Thank you guys!

Proceed from Gosau to Adamek hutte and then climbed via West ridge (iceberg + via ferrata A/B) to the top. Absolut wonderfull sunny weekend, clear blue sky.

Dachstein Super-Ferrata  Sucess!

Superb weather. Started from the parking lot at 6:40. Climbed the 3 ferrates and reached the peak at 12:10. Quite a lot of people on the route. Rockfall on two occasions, backpack was hit on the first one - not much fun :(
Jumped the crevasse on the glacier going down - and spotted to Spitfire planes over the mountain!! All in all a good and eventful day in the mountain.

Route Climbed: Northeast Wall  Sucess!

Alternative goal instead of the Torstein, due to open crevasses on the Gosau glacier and too soft snow on the northern slopes.
Once again with skis. Good weather. Fixed ropes beneath snow, so more exposed than during spring. Beautiful view!

Via West Ridge  Sucess!

Perfect weather, lot of snow on the glacier, so the crevasses were hidden well. Perfect conditions on the ridge.

Route Climbed: Northeast Face  Sucess!

Ski toured up from Krippenbrunn (1.630m) via Simony hut and the Hallstätter glacier to the ski depot below the NE face (app 5 hours). The NE couloir is a short & nice 45° B/C II- mixed climb (100m, 30 min). 1:45 hours ski descent back to Krippenbrunn.

Route Climbed: Obertraun - Simony - Dach (NE Route)  Sucess!

Bad snow condition (low snow) was advantage on the summit (final climbing without skis). But skiing down to the Gjaidlam was terrible.:-(

North East wall  Sucess!

One of my very first mountaineering trips. I was not quite ready for a such glacier and big crevasses since I traveled solo. The whole massif is great for climbing with pretty views.

Route Climbed: West Ridge, Northeast Wall  Sucess!

Coming from 'Simonyhütte', we crossed the 'Steinerschart'n' to the
'Gosau' glacier. Then we went up the West Ridge and down on the
normal route over the Northeast Wall back to the 'Hallstätter' glacier.

Route Climbed: Steiner route Date Climbed: Summer 1986  Sucess!

Climbed the Steiner route with Heiner Micko. Spectacular, huge exposure at the Steiner Ledge. Very exhausted, missed the last cablecar and had to descend the steep, loose face below Hunerscharte.

Route Climbed: Halstatt-Wiesberghaus-Dachstein Date Climbed: 11 May 2002  Sucess!

May is not the best time of year for this , there is a bit too much of melting snow on the way to the Wiesberghaus , so we were constantly falling into hidden holes , but fortunately next day was quite cold and the way up to the summit was stable.

The worst thing was that there are too many unexperienced climbers and they are blocking the way up , and , what is even worse , down. The storm was coming and we were forced to stay on the summit for about two hours , because some group was going really slow , even damaging our ropes with crampons.

Route Climbed: East normal Date Climbed: August 1972  Sucess!

My first important summit, a long time ago... I did'nt use the cable car. I climbed over the shoulder and used the normal route to descend.

Route Climbed: East Ridge  Sucess!

Starting at the 'Dachstein Südwandhütte' we took the ascent to 'Hunerscharte', crossed the glacier and climbed on the East Ridge cableroute to the top. It was fine weather but very crowded.
