CLIMBING GROSSGLOCKNER VIA THE “STÜDLGRAT” (STUEDL RIDGE)
The tour to the summit of Grossglockner via the Stüdlgrat starts at the parking area next to the hotel and restaurant “Lucknerhaus“.
Following the well-marked trail through the Ködnitz valley you pass the “Lucknerhütte” (Luckner hut) until you reach the “Stüdlhütte” (approx. 2.5 h).
There you will meet you mountain guide at around 19:00. Please register at the counter with your name so the staff can show you your mountain guide. After talking about the tour and checking the equipment (harness, crampons and helmet are provided by the mountain guide) you stay the night at Stüdlhütte.
The following day the tour starts at around 5:30 in the morning.
The first bit is quite steep walking until you reach the Teischnitz glacier. After about 1.5 hours it is time to use your hands and do some climbing. Starting very easy there is plenty of time to warm up before the real climbing in the alpine style takes over. In a total of approx. 4 hours from Stüdlhütte you reach the 3.798 m high top of Grossglockner.
The descent is via the “normal route” passing Erzherzog-Johann hut and over the Ködnitz glacier back to Stüdlhütte. From there on you will continue by yourself back down to Lucknerhaus.
