The ascent of the Grossglockner (3798 meters) is one of the great summit experiences in the Alpine region. The ascent over the Stüdlgrat is probably one of the best and most popular ridge climbs in Austria. This tour to the roof of Austria and also the Eastern Alps is a fastidious alpine undertaking, which should not be underestimated. On nice days, with appropriate preparation and the professionals of the Alpine School Garmisch, the tour becomes a very special experience.
Around noon we meet at the parking lot at the Lucknerhaus. From there we hike over idyllic alpine meadows, with a truly royal mountain panorama to the Stüdlhütte. We spend the night at the Stüdlhütte directly under the Großglockner (2802m).
After an early breakfast, we head to the entrance of the striking ridge. In wonderfully solid rock we often climb further and further up to the summit of the Grossglockner. The difficulty level of the route can be classified at levels 2 and 3 terrain. The long ascent offers the best pleasure climbing up , as well as partly additionally defused climbing points. Far too soon we are already standing on the highest mountain in Austria and enjoy the distant view in all directions compensated for the efforts and efforts in any case. We enjoy the breathtaking mountain panorama and the sense of achievement of having climbed the highest mountain in Austria with our own strength and on a unique tour. The descent follows the ascent path of the normal route. We descend to the Lucknerhaus on the same day. Here we enjoy the well-deserved "summit half" and let the day end.
