Description

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 1: Kürsinger 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 2: Grossvenediger 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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
