Overhaul recommended

I would recommend a major overhaul of the page as Ortler is an important mountain. There should be at least a short section about the main routes 1. North route from Payerhütte, 2. Hintergrat from Hintergrathütte and 3. Meraner Weg from Berglhütte. Actually only Hintergrat is described in a Route page.

Berglhütte and the Lombardi Bivvy is missing in the mountain huts section.

The "How to reach the summit" section shortly describes the North Route from Payerhütte together with some pics of Hintergrat route, which I find a bit confusing.

The rating of the Northern route should be upgraded a bit in my opinion. Due to glacier retreat the section below and above Lombardi Bivouak can be nasty enough not only in September and I learned that nowadays the Meraner Weg from Berglhütte is more and more considered as the easiest way up to the summit.

Maybe I can report about that route later in the year.
