Beautiful glacier summit. Very fine north east face ice shield rising from Austria with two long ribbon glaciers falling from the secondary summit toward Sterzing (Italy). Southern approach from Sterzing via the Hochfeilerhutte (2770 m) is spectacular and straight forward. The only real scrambling is immediately after leaving the refuge where a wall is climbed to gain the summit ridge; fixed ropes (PD-). Nice snow arête to finish at summit cross. Fantastic views of the Gliderferner and down the north face.
