Description

The Grossglockner (3789m) is the roof of Austria. And in fact, it’s one of the most famous peaks in the country. I invite you in this occasion to ascend it by the normal route in 2 days.

It will be a demanding and rewarding ascent on the rock. In addition, the first day includes some fun via ferrata. And we will sleep at the Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte, the highest mountain hut in Austria.

I can guarantee that you will never forget the panorama from the summit!

You need to be prepared and in very food condition since we will ascend up to 400 meters per hour. Besides, the difficulty of the climbing is up to UIAA 2.

About the guide

guide profile img

Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.

One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.
