Climb Meletzkigrat: difficulty is route finding in the beginning of the Pasterze, due to the melted ice/melting rivers at the base of the glacier. Once on the glacier it's a long ascent to the beginning of the ridge (ridge starts at frühstückplatz)! The ridge itself is very nice and a relatively safe route to climb. The Old Hofmannsweg (ascent/descent to Adlersrühe) is due to the glacier conditions impossible to use in the summer!
we climbed Großglockner from Salmhütte and descended via Meletzkigrat. That is a very nice variation to the Hofmann route. Highly recommended !!
and hard wind
met only two climbers; nice climb
