Grossglockner (3798m) is Austria’s highest mountain and a very popular goal among mountaineers. Join me on this 2-day program to its summit via the normal route.
On the border between the Austrian states of Carinthia and Tyrol, Grossglockner is part of the High Tauern mountain range. During the ascent, you’ll enjoy strikingly beautiful views of the surrounding peaks.
This classic route to the Grossglockner summit is not technically difficult but be aware that you do need to know how to walk with crampons and have a very good physical condition.
This 2-day climb starts with a hiking trail to Studl Hut. From there, our next goal will be Erzherzog Johann Hut, where we’ll spend the night. To get to the hut, we’ll have to cross a magnificent glacier, and that’s where the crampons come in handy!
We’ll leave quite early on the second day for the summit attack. The biggest challenge is right before we get to the top: Glockner Scharte (col) will lead us straight to the summit.
