Strong wind, 5-10 cm unstable snow on the ridge.
Ascent: NW-ridge, descent: SW-ridge
Through the Gamsgrube over the south ridge hiking towards the top ridge and top. Down in the direction of the Sonnenwelleck and then over the Magneskees. Which turned out to have a few small crevasces.
On a beautiful day in late summer, we hiked up along the S-ridge from the Gamsgrubenweg to the NW summit, scrambled west along the exposed ridge to the true summit and back, and finally descended along the NW-ridge.
The NW ridge itself was clean, but there was a bit of fresh snow on the north and north eastern sides of the mountain, and when we left the ridge to try to get around a tricky steep part, this snow proved harder still. Best to stay on the ridge!
Did the nice traverse ascending via the NW-ridge (rock-ridge, UIAA: II, sometimes quite exposed) and descending via the SW-ridge with my girlfriend and climbing partner Irene.
Beautiful weather and good conditions.
If you want to have a "premier seat" for watching Grossglockner and surrounding, the summit of Fuscherkarkopf (3.331 m) is definitely THE place to be!
Climbed the mountian with my friend Erich "Der Froshman". We were short for the last 50 meters, as the mountian was very icy and wet; we did not want to take any chances!
Very bad rock conditions, not good rock.
