After rain at the Duisburgerhütte... I changed my plan and instead of going to Hoher Sonnblick, the way went up, wenn it stopt rainning I went up to Schareck. It was the first +3000m. of my vacation at Austria 2015
Schareck is my first summit over 3000m.
I went up Schareck starting out at the Niedersachsenhaus and going via Neunerkogel and Herzog Ernst. Apart from one rather serious key passage between Herzog Ernst and Schareck, it's a fairly easy mountain with a gorgeous view to all sides. Already the ascent, which constantly follows the ridge, is spectacular! By 1988, though, the Mölltaler Gletscherbahnen had already been built. Just shortly after I reached the summit, a german hiker arrived as well. I remember so well how he took one look - and fell into a fit of fury! "This can't be possible!", he shouted in complete outrage. "Only four years ago I was here, and it was so beautiful! Now they've wrecked the whole mountain!"
Reached the altitude of some 2100m by car, then went around the corner to a nice lake to set up a tent over night. Next morning we simply ascended the summit by the marked path and over ski slopes. Only the last part of the summit ridge was interesting. No big panorama as well that day.
Start at parking Lenzanger, then by post bus to Amarerhof, later walk-up to Niedersachsenhaus and to summit, as in route description. Low temperature, over 3000 m about 0 degrees Celsius, clouds and light rain (wet rocks). I climbed without equipment, but via ferrata set would be recommended for the second part of the route.
