Grossglockner via Salmhütte


46° 37' 12.7344" N, 13° 51' 8.5896" E

Austria's highest mountain not only receives alpinists in its lofty kingdom: experienced climbers with good equipment can approach his majesty via the Wiener Höhenweg, which connects the Schober and Glockner Groups. The start is at the Grossglockner high alpine road with the first stop at the Salmhütte (2,644 m). For experienced climbers the ascent to the summit at 3,798 m begins here. It is the classic route via the Hohenwartscharte (3,183 m) and Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte (3,454 m) following in the footsteps of the first climbers. This path is seldom used for the ascent, but it is the only one that doesn't lead over highly glaciated terrain with many crevices. Note: mountain guides and glacier equipment are a must!
