from west / Landawirseehütte
From Golling hut 1.641m to Hochgolling and down to Göriachalmen ~1.400m
Bike and Hike from Gasthaus Riesachfälle (1079m), via NW ridge. 2:35 to summit. Back at car at lunchtime. Nice tour!
bad weather + a lot of snow (in Aug 1978)
It was a one day hike, from the parking place up to the summit and back. From the Gollingscharte we took the easyer route (the more difficult one -as far as I remember UIAAII leads on the east ridge) the visibility was poor. The circus valley above the Gollinghutte is worth to visit even for moderate hikers.
It was a nice 2-day hike. From Riesach waterfalls we went with all camping equipment up along Riesachbach, Preintaler hut, Klafferkessel to Greifenberg, 2618m, again 1000m down to Golling hut and to the end of valley - Gollingwinkel. Slept there, having some troubles with horses, grazing grass just around our tent. Next day we climbed up Hochgolling by the NW ridge and descended by the normal route.
I climbed Hochgolling in one day from the north; Not from Golling Hut but from Obertal. It was during my holidays in Ramsau a long time ago : I was 19 years old...
