My very first "big climb", thanks to Matej for organisation and together with Marketa and Adam for company :) Studlgrat was a bit foggy but sunny at the top, the ascend was fast and easy. Descended by the Normal route in the company of huge crowd :/
Very windy but sunny day
great achievement as a day-tour, still being a very young climber ... hoping to do stüdlgrat soon on one of my home visits.
Good conditions and good weather
The last 300 meters were a bit hairy but what a climb.
24/09/2014 - normal route
Good weather, but have a many people in the normal route. Many slowly climbers.
Very good weather, no glacier crevasses. Among 70-80 people, we were the only team without ski (snowshoes).
super trip. one day we climbed to erzherzhog johann hutte. Then verry soon, before the sunrise, we climbed on the top!
Normal route from the Stueldhütte. Perfect weather - which meant A LOT of people on the route. I think I counted more than 150, most of them however climbing Stuedlgrat. Nice ridge climb to the summit. My climbing partner got scared just before Kl.Glocker but a nice Austrian sole climber (Mathias, thank you) joined our rope on the last part.
Not succesfull due to bad weather and not enough time to wait for another oppertunity
Only 30-something other climbers at the usually jam-packed Erzherzog Johann hut. The next morning, we were the first party to summit and held Austria's top exclusively for 10 minutes.
Start from StudleHutte 4.40 Summit - 7.20 Come back to the Hutte 9.30. Good weather -sunny, not wind, not cold.
Nice climb up the normal route from the Adlersruhe through the morning mist.
Climbed with Wilco and a local guide from Kals. This is the first alpine route that I have climbed twice now, as I climbed it before back in 2006. From what I remember of that climb, the Stüdlgrat had much less cables back then.
Nevertheless, this time it was made slightly more difficult by that little bit of fresh snow that had come down the previous evening. It wasn't much, but it sure made those small ledges trickier. At the start of the climb, the weather was fine, but during the last hour to the summit, it quickly deteriorated. No views anymore.
We descended the normal route, and after a rest at the Erzherzog Johann Hütte, we continued to the Salm Hütte. All in all, it was a very long day - and the best one I had that whole week!
Guided climb over the normal route with some friends. Good weather, good company and pleasant climbing.
What a great climb! The weather was beautiful, good rock and belay bolts.
Definitely going back one day to climb it again; maybe another route then.
First day: Luckner Haus (1950m) - Studlhutte (2801m) - Erzherzogg Johann Hut (3454m)
Second day: Erzh. Joh. Hut - summit of Grossglockner -Erzherzog Johann Hut - Studlhutte - LucknerHaus
We had strong winds and zero visibility on the first day. When we woke up in the hut on our summit day the weather didn't improve at all. The wind was strong but we still managed to get to the summit. Although visibility was low, it was a great feeling to be on 'top of Austria'.
After the unsuccessful attempt(due to too much snow, strong wind, one sick and one not enough experienced partners) from the previous day on Stuedlgrat, we decided to go on the normal route, hoping that our less experienced partner will be able to join us on this easier route. But still he had to turn back, so we got up little after 11 AM with a lot, I would say too many, people for beginning of October. But we had great views and clear blue skies. Berg Heil!
1st day we made approach from Luckner house via Studl hutte and Kodnitzkees glacier to Erzherzog Johan Hutte where we stayed over night. Next day on 26.06. we climbed to the summit. The weather was no so good...the ridge was covered with clouds so we could not see much from the top. After the summit we have descended all the way to Studl Hutte where we stayed for another night. On 27.06. we have returned to our cars. Great mountain & great climbing!
Climbed the Studlgrat while leading a youth NKBV-group up to the summit. Athmospheric and impressive.
