    Would you like to climb up to one of the most spectacular summits in Austria? Then join me in this 2-day ascent to the Grossvenediger (3660 m), by the North Ridge!

    This peak lies on the border between Tyrol and Salzburg, in the Hohe Tauern mountain range. Also, it’s one of the most beautiful glaciated summits in the Alps! Many mountaineers have climbed Grossvenediger as their first high glacier mountain.

    Our meeting point will be Neukirchen am Grossvenediger. We will take a Tälertaxi there to the funicular station (1.929m) of the Kürsinger Hütte(2.548m ). Then, we will start climbing to the hut. 

    So, on the second day, very early in the morning, our ascent will begin. From the summit, we will enjoy incredible views of the Alps! You can check the detailed program below this text. 

    Also, please note that you need to be in very good physical condition in order to join this tour. Also, you should have a good head for heights. This climb difficulty level is UIAA -4.

    Contact me if you find this Grossvenediger ascent tour tempting! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program.

    I also offer an ascent to the same mountain by the normal route and by the West Ridge as well. You can check out these tours!

    Itinerary

     
    • Day 1Kürsinger Hut

      We will meet at Neukirchen am Grossvenediger, and we will get a taxi to the funicular station (1929m). Then, we will head to the Kürsinger Hut (2548 m). The equipment can be sent to the hut by cable car. We will decide whether we will make the climb to the hut by the normal path, the Klamml, or whether we will climb over the new via ferrata route. It will be a 600 metres ascent (2 hours).

    • Day 2Grossvenediger Summit

      Very early in the morning, we will begin our ascent to the summit! We will follow the normal route up to the 3000 meter limit. Then, we will cross to the right, to the entrance of the northern ridge. It’s initially exposed, but nevertheless, as a block ridge it’s relatively easy to climb. It will be a level IV difficulty climb. After the summit ascent, we will descend again along the normal path. Back at the hut, we will take a short rest and then continue the descent to the cable car. From here the taxi takes us back to the starting point. The total climb up and down will take us 10 hours. (1200 metres up-1800 metres down).

    About the Guide

     
     

    I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a climbing lover. I grew up in a small farm in Mittersiller Sonnberg. My parents used to show us the beauty of our mountains. When I was 10 years old I went ski touring for the first time and I really loved it. The next years, I started climbing walls which really fascinated me. I also participated in many competitions.

    My career took me to Hohe Tauern National Park where I finished the ranger training to bring visitors to the beauties of my country.

    In 2013, I got my official certificate as a mountain guide and ski instructor. A dream came true! Since 2014, I have been working a full time guide, guiding in different areas such as Ortler, Valais, Dolomites, Wilder Kaiser, Muztagh Ata (China)... and of course, in some of our famous mountains such as Großvenediger and Großglockner.

    Feel free to get in touch with me! I'll be glad to share with you a great moment in the mountains!
