Nice but crowded.
Started from the Kursinger hut at 4:00 am, summited around 4 1/2 hours later and went to the Badener hut.
Kürsinger hut 2.558m - Venedigerscharte - Großvenediger - Rainerhorn 3.560m and back.
The road from Neukirchen into the Obersulzbach valley was only opened up to the Hopfeldboden parking lot. From there we had to carry the skis for the first hour until there was enough snow to put them on. The total ascent to the Kürsinger hut took us 7.5 hours.
On summit day there were strong winds all the way up. One of my buddies got frost bites in the face. 4 hours from the hut to the summit. A total of 9 hours back to the car, including a longer break at the Postalm restaurant on the way back down the Obersulzbach valley.
Climbed from Defreggerhaus in great weather. Consequently the route and the summit was quite crowded. Descended to the vilage the same afternoon just in time to avoid the incoming storm.
(A túrát az iKaland szervezte, Erõss Zsolt és Sterczer Hilda vezette.)
Did this one with my dad when I was about 12. I can remember being scared to take a pee. Apart from that, it was pretty easy.
One day skitouring trip from Matreier Tauernhaus. 14h up and down. Wonderful waether.
My first ascent was in July, 1995. We had a perfect weather and as we got up very early in the morning, there weren't crowd on the summit.
In 2001 we went there again to spend our 4-days long weekend in October. That time we weren't so lucky with the weather. At the first attempt we walked in heavy snowfall and fog, and soon returned to the Defregger Haus. Next day it was a little better, the clouds rose to 3400 m, so our only problem was that there was no path to follow. We made a new track in the snow, trying to avoid the fissures of the glacier. At Rainertörl we reached the clouds, and proceeded with the help of my compass: I knew that the summit is NW from there, and we followed that direction, and sometimes corrected a little to the steepest ascent. We didn't see anything, just the next one on the rope. Finally we glanced the summit cross from about 8 meters. It was so cold, that the sensor button of my camera didn't want to work, I had to breathe warm air to my fingr and to the button to launch it:)
Anyway, at least it was a memorable tour...
Climbed in two days. We slept in Defreggerhaus.
Conditions were good. Very long trail on the glacier, fresh snow, beautiful view everywhere and heavy winds on the last ridge and on the summit. Many people on the way.
Very easy and crowded mountain.
It was very nice weather.
With Cesare. A fantastic week tour around the Group
My second attempt to ski down Grossvenediger was successful.
With skiies all the way to the summit from the Defereggerhaus. Nice ski descent.
Frog storm is the most dangerous thing in mountains ;-)
I climbed with Sene. It was cold an awful night in the winterraum. I slept 2-3 hours. Started at half past five. We reached the summit after two and a half hour climbing. There was perfect weather and good view and was big crowd on the top. After we climbed the Rainer Horn. Very nice and unforgettable tour.
Climb it from Defreggerhaus with my friend and his 9 years old son. Nice tour for me, great climb for the boy who climb it very good!
We had to slept in the winterraum becouse we hadn't book a place in the Hütte. Start early in the morning in good snow condition. After this summit we went up to the Rainer Horn.
In this day the weather was perfect, but the route couldn't seen at all because of the fresh snow. So we had to be careful.
It was a long walk, but we reached the top at 10am.
I made this summit with my friend Boris. The ascent and descent takes 2 days. We slept at the winter-room „Defregger hutte(2950m)“
and the next day over the glacier and summited. It was a nice weather. The ascent is all the way walk up, not technical but a long walk days.
We had perfect weather, good glacier conditions, and lots of people... It was a fantastic trip, we climbed via eastern route, sleeping at Neue Prager Hütte, and descended via southern route. We could see beautiful landscapes through the crystal clear sky.
