Wurzer Rinne

First ascent: Peter and Matthias Wurzer, 18/11/2012
By: Vittorio Messini, Mountain Guide Kals am Großglockner
Area: Tauern Alps, Group: High Tauern, Peak: Hochgasser, Height: 2922m, Country: Austria, Region: East Tirol

Nice ice and mixed route established by the brothers Peter and Matthias Wurzer, a few hundred metres to the right of Hauptgully. Like the other routes on this face, it finished on the Hochgasser North Ridge.

ACCESS

The approach (circa 1 - 1.5 hours) starts from the north exit of the Felbertauerntunnel. From here ascend either to the left or to the right of the tunnel exit.

DESCENT

Descend to Schoppmanntörl and walk on down to the car, or descend towards St. Pöltner Hütte and then follow the road to reach the south tunnel entrance. In both cases calculate circa 2 - 2.5 hours.

NOTES

Even if these routes don't climb extreme difficulties, both require carefully snow pack assessment, as the NW Face is prone to avalanches. Autumn is therefore the best time of year for these routes.

For information about these routes and climbing in this area contact the Alpine Guides Kals am Großglockner: www.bergfuehrer-kals.at
