Gross Glockner 2015

Skitouring with Thomas, Marcel, Joop, Bart and Mark and the two guides Markus and Markus to the highest mountain of Austria, the Gross Glockner (3798m).

Two days of acclimatization on the Weisssee, where we did the Sonnblick tour and a day of training with roping up, walking and climbing on crampons and getting our gear ready.

After that, we moved to the Lucknerhaus, where we ascended to the Stüdlhütte (2800m) with stormy wind and snowfall. The next morning we had a weather window, but the wind was still stormy and the avalanche danger had risen to 4. No chance on the summit. So we descended and did the Glorer Hütte (2642m) instead.
