Description

Join me on this 2-day trip and reach the summit of Wildspitze (3774m), the highest mountain in Tyrol. This very varied and impressive tour takes you over glaciers and a gentle rock ridge. From the top, we will have a fantastic view over the Ötztal Alps.

Bear in mind this ascent requires an very good fitness level, as to hike up 8 to 9 hours per day, although no crampons experience is needed, as we will have some training time.

We will meet in Vent, where we will take a chairlift up to 2365m. From there we will walk (2,5h) to the summit of Wilder Mann (3019 m), to acclimatize to altitude.  Then we will descend to the Rofenkar glacier for crampon training and continue to the Breslauer Hut (2844 m) where we stay over night.

On the next day, we start early to climb the Wildspitze. Over a slight via Ferrata we reach the Mitterkarjoch (3470m). From there we continue via the Taschach glacier to the southwest ridge to the summit. From the top, we will get breathtaking views over the surrounding mountains.

We will descend the same way, or if the conditons are good we make the traverse of Wildspitze and descend via the Rofenkar glacier back to the chairlift. It will takes us in total about 8 to 9 hours.

Want to join me on this ascent? Just send me a request, book your trip and I will guide you to the top of Wildspitze.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/IVBV Certified mountain, ski and canyoning guide, member of DAV and VDBS mountaineering and sport climbing teaching and training team. I’ve been part of the VDBS team for the formation and training of German mountain guides for 20 years.

I started climbing at the age of 17. Since 1987 I am certified mountain guide and a passion has become a profession. I live in Scharnitz / Tyrol and I am leader of the moutaineering school Alpenwelt Karwendel in Mittenwald.
Ice climbing in norway, skitouring in morocco, rock climbing in cuba or high mountains in the himalaya - I like it to explore new areas around the world. I led a DAV training expedition for talented young mountaineers in the Tian Shan mountain range with climbing Khan Tengri and did several expeditions to the karakorum mountains and the himalayas.

As a full-time mountain guide, I feel at home in the Karwendel and Wetterstein mountains as well as in the mountains and climbing areas worldwide. I am happy to accompany you as a guide to your desired goal!

Bernd is a great teacher and guide. My husband and I are so glad that we had him as first timers for ice climbing. Aside from being knowledgeable, he is a very kind, warm and genuine person.

This tour was great! Bernd was very knowledgeable about the ice and climbing. He was very helpful and consistently offered advice and guidance to those of us who had never climbed before. I would definitely do more tours with him

The guide Bernd was terrific - very knowledgable, experienced and patient with our group of beginners. Even when the weather turned to the worse, he kept finding ways to make it enjoyable, safe and interesting for all of us. We had a great time. Communication with him prior to the trip was also very clear and easy. Highly recommended!

We booked Bernd to organise a day of top rope and lead climbing for our family who climb regularly indoors but are novices outdoors. Bernd asked the right questions and selected a perfect area for us to climb with a large number of routes of differing grades. Bernd gave us the right amount of instruction and guidance - we are already planning our next trip to Austria and will be repeat customers.
