Ski trip from Mittelbergjoch  Sucess!

Good conditions, great weather, some wind up on the ridge. Descent to the Vernagt hut. A good way to start an easter weekend at the Vernagt hut.

Summer and Winter success  Sucess!

I climbed both summits three times; in summer from Breslauer Hütte and from Taschachhaus, traversing Petersenspitze and in spring from Vernagthütte with skies.

Route Climbed: From Braunschweiger Hut via NW ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful trip, fairly easy, even via the unusual NW ridge.
Great view, clear sky, just a perfect mountain day!

Wonderful  Sucess!

A bit more difficult than Similaun two days before, but still quite easy. From Breslauer h., through Mitterkarjoch to the southern summit, then traverse to the northern summit, and descend via north-east ridge. Especially descend was beautiful and delicious :-)

Impressive mountain!  Sucess!

Impressive peak, the highest of Tyrol and the second of Austria, it was a very special experience. Because the presence of less snow for the hot temperatures in july of this year the coulouir of normal route from Breslauer Hütte was really vertical (45-50º) and we left it cilmibg the channel of rocks of left side (not very difficult rocky climb of grade II with some fixed ropes for help). The route had some important crevasses in the glacier but it was a secure route. We found some ice in the final part but without snow to reach the summit in a foggy day. No views in the summit but it was the most important climb in our holidays in Austria. In the descent we climbed the nice Wildes Mannle (3,019m) with some interesting view of Wildspitze.
We'll return some day to this beautiful country, I'm sure.

Route Climbed: Standard Ski Route,  Sucess!

i.e. from Mittelbergjoch (3,166 m); great ski tour with Jessica; 2,5 hours; beautiful weather; beautiful scenery (little snow this year, so the icefalls were even more impressive than previously); didn't use a rope; used crampons for the final ascent to the summit; tricky passage just below the summit

Breslauer hütte - Mitterkarjoch  Sucess!

Starting Vent - cable car- and Breslauer Hütte via the Mitterkarjoch. Mitterkarjoch was a little crowded. We reached the top about 3 o'clock. Long tour. It was exhausting. But we have done it.

attached to dalton1  Sucess!

As dalton1 said it wasn't the best day to climb Wildspitze, but we started it finally at 3:30 in the morning from Vent:)
I would rather say it was mainly the ice which made the climbing difficulty, because the past few days were very cold a foggy. When we reached the ridge the wind made the climbing also much difficult. We could only see about 5-7 meters forward nothing more. We stayed only a few minutes on the top, but we were there!

Not good day for mountaneering...  Sucess!

Climbed in extreme weather conditions with my father and a friend of mine from Vent in one day. We started our juorney at 3:30am and got back to Breslauer Hütte at about 2pm and to Vent at 4pm. It was a 12,5 hour tour, our second glacier tour. We drank some bier at Breslauer Hütte, a beautiful hungarian girl is working there...:)
The weather was absolutelly bad..."Fucking wind..." as an american said...and fog and cold and many snow all the way...despite all this there where many who climbed it that day. Polish, german, austrian, hungarian, ect.
Wonderful view north from Mitterkarjoch! Great and tiring climb on a magnificent mountain!!!
