ITINERARIES AND PROGRAMS

The normal route to the Grossglockner also suitable for people with first mountaineering experience. The majestic high mountain environment, the glacier traverse and the final rocky section of moderate mountaineering difficulty (grade II passes) make this climb a true high mountain "baptism."

Meet at Fedaia Pass, check equipment and start ascent. Tying rehearsal, progression on glacier, tying and belays on snow/ice.

Overnight or Glacier Refuge or Cima Marmolada.

  • Day 1: Meet and transfer to Alpengasthof Lucknerhaus and ascent to Studlhutte Hut (2802m) in about 2 hrs.
  • Day 2: Depart before dawn and climb up the Kodnitzkees Glacier to the Erzhzg Johann Hutte. From the hut first by snow and ice and then by rocky ridge to the summit cross. Descent by the same route as the ascent.

The elevation gain is no more than 1,000 meters per day, nevertheless the altitude and general fatigue require very good physical condition.

The Studlgrat is definitely the most elegant and beautiful route to climb the Grossglockner, perfect gneiss for climbing and very well equipped in the challenging sections (a few grade III pitches). A magnificent ride on high mountain terrain that requires some climbing experience in boots.

  • Day 1: Meet and transfer to Alpengasthof Lucknerhaus and climb to Studlhutte Hut (2802m) in about 2 hours
  • Day 2: Depart before dawn and climb up the Teischnitzkees glacier. Then ascend rocky cliffs with I and II grade passages to the Yellow Plate of the Fruhstucks-plaz (3550m). From here the difficulties increase with III steps until you reach the final ridge and summit (3798m). Descent by the Normal route.

Rates include: the accompaniment of the Mountain Guide, liability insurance, use of common materials and any missing equipment.

Fees DO NOT include: travel, half pensions in mountain huts and Mountain Guide fees.

Presanella is a large mountain in the Adamello-Presanella group, its summit touches 3558 meters (1,955 feet) and, thanks to its isolated location, provides a stunning panorama that sweeps all the way to the Dolomites.
