I invite you to join me in this 2-day ascent to the Grossvenediger (3660 m) by the West Ridge! This impressive glaciated mountain is the main summit of the Venediger Group.

It lies in the Hohe Tauern range, on the border between East Tyrol and Salzburg in Austria. Also, it’s the fifth highest mountain in the country. Besides, the Grossvenediger is one of the most incredible summits in the Alps!

Today I propose to you a great 2-day ascent program. We will meet at Neukirchen am Grossvenediger, from where we will head to the Kürsinger Hütte (2548 m). Then, on the second day, we will begin our ascent to the summit.

Please note that you need to be in very good physical condition! The difficulty level of this climb UIAA 2. Also, you should have a good head for heights.

We will pass through rugged glaciers to the West Ridge and then reach the amazing crest. We will be able to enjoy a spectacular view! You can check the complete itinerary below this text.

So, contact me if you want to join me in this 2-day ascent! I will give you all the information you need and we can start planning your trip. Also, I offer a guided climb the Grossglockner by the normal route.  Check it out!

Meeting point

Neukirchen am Grossvenediger




Day 1: Neukirchen am Grossvenediger-Kürsinger Hütte

We will meet at Neukirchen am Grossvenediger and we will take the  Tälertaxi to the funicular station (1920 m). Then, we will head to the Kürsinger Hütte (2548 m). The material 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

Today we will begin our ascent to the Grossvenediger summit. At the beginning the access is the same as for the normal route. But then our way separates from the other climbers. On this lonely path, we will pass through the rugged glacier to the entrance of the West Ridge. Climbing along this ridge, we will now reach the beautiful summit, the highest in Salzburg. We will descend over the normal path back to the Kürsinger Hütte. After a short stop at the hut, we will take the taxi back again. It will take us in total about 10 hours. We will climb up 1200 metres. The descent will be 1800 metres, to the starting point.


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.
