Schareck Mountain, Austria, Guided Ascent


The Schareck peak is in the Goldberg group of mountains in Austria, and IFMGA certified guide, Gernot wants to lead you to its summit.

Not specified


1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




The Schareck mountain (3,123m) is the second highest mountain in the Goldberg range, after the Hocharn (3,254m).

Located on the border between the Austrian states of Carinthia and Salzburg, the Schareck mountain provides fantastic views of the surrounding Alps. You also can see the Wurtenkees glacier and the Schareckkees glacier.

On this trip, the climb will be more a scenic adventure, as opposed to a technical ascent. However, some climbing experience is necessary, as there are some tough spots that will require rope. The ascent and descent will take between 8 and 10 hours.

The trip will begin at the Valeriehaus (1,580). From there we will go west along the Siglilztal until we reach Hunsruck. After that we will go over the Bahlsen-Weg to the Niedersachsenhaus (2,472m). After leaving the Niedersachsenhaus, we will climb over the Nordwestgrat. From this point, the views of the landscape are absolutely stunning. We will continue on by crossing the Neuenerkogel and the Herzogspitze peak until we reach the summit of Schareck.

Schareck is the kind of peak that has many paths one can take to reach its summit. However, on the path I will guide you on, I believe you will get to truly absorb and appreciate the beauty of the Goldberg mountain range.

If you would like to join me on this full day adventure, please contact me.

And if you would like to climb another peak in Austria, I can also guide you on this ascent of Ankogel.

About the guide

I’m from Austria (Europe) and live in the Gastein-Valley next to Salzburg. Since 1996 I’m a UIAGM / IVBV professional mountain guide. In 2000 I graduated as a ski instructor.
My last 20 years I was working as mountain guide in all different parts of the Alps, in all seasons. In winter I work for different ski schools as ski instructor in Austria and Switzerland. Since a couple of years i am guiding as well in New Zealand. Furthermore I`m working in several education teams like the Austrian Mountain Guide Association as a coach, and also in the Austrian Skiing Instructor Association, specialized for alpine courses.
I was member of two Himalaya expeditions in 1997 and 2004. I have been climbing on Cho Oyu and Broad Peak .
My big passion is rock and ice climbing.

The trip was rushed, and unfortunately the guide was impatient and at times I felt that he didn’t want to be there - which made the trip unenjoyable. The positives were, No doubt he is vey experienced, I have learnt a lot from him and was thankful for things he have shown me.

I had a great time. The warm weather made challenging to find ice, but Gernot found us a fun and exciting pillar. He gave me lots of good tips to help me improve my technique. I would definitely recommend the Bad Gastein area for ice climbing.
