Großvenediger 3,657 m
The Großvenediger, the “world-old majesty”, is the heavily glaciated main summit of the Venediger group in the Hohe Tauern on the border between East Tyrol and Salzburg.
At 3,657 meters above sea level, it is the highest mountain in Salzburg.
- Good condition for 350 vertical meters / hour,
- Surefootedness, a head for heights
The meeting point is in Oberpinzgau near Neukirchen am Großvenediger at Hopfeldboden at the entrance to the Oberzulzbachtal. Transfer by taxi to the Kührsingerhütte material cable car (1,950 m). Moderate ascent to the hut via a marked hiking trail.
- Ascent: 600 meters in altitude
- 2 hours
In the light of the headlamps we hike towards the glacier. With the first light of day we enter the glacier. Roped up, we walk across the huge glacier area of Obersulzbachkees past crevasses to the Venice Scharte (3,200 m). From here it’s another 400 meters to the summit when the air is getting thinner. For the “grand finale”, it goes over the famous firn ridge to the summit cross. After a long rest it goes back to the hut on the same path. After a little refreshment at the Kürsingerhütte, we go down to the material cable car, where the taxi is already waiting.
- Ascent: 1,200 meters in altitude
- Descent to the material ropeway: 1,800 meters in altitude
- 10-12 hours
