From Oberissalm  Sucess!

Started hiking at 5 from the Oberissalm, passing by the Franz-Senn-Hütte, on the summit somewhere around 10:30. Beautiful day. Hard frozen glacier in the morning, getting sloppy (and very hot) on the way down.

Ordered too much food in the hut, felt a little sick and headachy. Shade near the car was required!

from Franz-Senn hut  Sucess!

nice and long tour, took the direct path (WSW, some ropes) from the glacier. Took the (long) SSW ridge for descent.

Traverse South-West  Sucess!

Traverse over beautiful Ruderhofferner (up) and "normal route" (i.e. via Alpeiner Ferner to Franz-Senn-hut) down.
Started 14th at Regensburger hut, bivied in upper Ruderhof at ~2780m, ascent 6:30 to 10 o'clock about (early ascent essential because of early rockfall).
Happy conditions because flawless weather after a period of cold and snowfall.

Route Climbed: South Face, From Mutterbergalm, On Skis  Sucess!

A demanding and very rewarding climb on skis, with Wolfgang. There's a very steep bit between 3,100 and 3,200 m. We had to take off the skis there.

Route Climbed: By ski from south Date Climbed: April 1991, May 2004  Sucess!

As Thomas describes in his log. If icy this quite steep slope is not for beginners on ski. I have seen pictures of this slope from 1960 where it seemed to be much easier (i.e. there was only snow but no rock). The small glacier has melt a lot the last decades.

Added June 2004: Failed 300m below summit end of May 2004. Too dangerous this time due to much snow this year (avalanches). Seems the small upper glacier has melt a lot the last decadeand has become less steep today.

Route Climbed: Normal route Date Climbed: 26 august 2001  Sucess!

From Franz-Senn-Hut to the glacier we didn't meet anyone. Later a few people, but nothing compared to the crowds on more famous Stubai peaks.

Conditions on the glacier were a bit icy and in the afternoon, lots of small streams of water were running on the ice surface. The ridge was snow free.
