3800m? No acclimatization needed :D

How high is the parking lot? Maybe you can put up a comfy tent there and then day hike/climb it?

Parking is at 1800m, but I guess in summer you could get up a bit higher with the car. Not sure if you are allowed to do so. And VERY sure the Corsa wouldn't be able to do that.

Hike up to Stuedl is about 2 hours if you're fit. Hike up to start of Stuedlgrad should take another 2+ hours if you're fit. Don't know about Stuedlgrad itself, but if you get up early it's possible to do it all in one day.

But as I said, you might want to check out the girls in the Stuedlhütte :wink:

Here is how I would do it:

Day one: Go to the Stuedlhutte, have a beer, enjoy the women
Day two: Get up early to climb normal route, go back to Stuedlhutte, have lunch a beer and enjoy the women. After lunch, do the Stuedlgrat
Day three: Guess what?
Day 4: home

Wouter's plan sounds terrific :D (especially the women part LOL)

Yeah, 1800m to 3800m in a day is doable but a bit much. Should be perfect in two days though.

Well folks, the time required for Stüdlgrat depends on:

1. the general conditions on the arete, wether there is snow or not, wether you have to climb with crampons or not etc.

2. your aptitude and efficiency to master an high alpine arete with mixed rock and snow / ice up to UIAA grade III with all the rappeling work

3. the amount and the aptitude / efficiency of the climbers in front of you and consequently the time you have to wait until the parties in front of you move on.

Stüdlgrat is a great route !!!! :D :D :D

Stüdlhütte is a great mountain hut. :D :D :D
I don´t know what you folks are talking about "not cheap" or "too expensive" or whatever. Nearly no hut keeper can make a living out of his hut. It is open only a short period in the year. There are sufficient guests only in the good weather periods. It is a remote, high alpine place where the hut is erected. You have high transportation costs for everything. You have high costs for supply. You have high maintenance costs. You have high costs for sewerage, energy and waste.

Nearly every mountain hut is a loss-making business. And all those families running a mountain hut as a sort of side job are highly engaged people to do so. They keep the huts and their surroundings in a good shape. And normally they are involved in rescuing people if an emergency occurs.

It´s the people and not the hut who are noisy and egoistic and do not respect that there are other people who want to sleep. So tell those people to shut up instead of avoiding huts.

I don´t mean that harshly but in my opinion you should think about that, too!

Cheers and good luck on the Stüdlgrat, Michael

You are absolutely right that everyting considered the huts are cheap. BUT if you compare it to camping, it's expensive.

All the rest, I agree.

Definitely! The only reason I can pull it off is because I'm exposed to altitude a lot more. The very first time I went to 3000m I had a bad headache, now I hardly ever notice it (well, besides being out of breath faster).
