The first climb of the Olperer was about 1879 by Paul Grohmann, Jakob Samer and Jakob Huber via SE-Ridge. Many people climb this mountain. You can go in winter and in summer. Most people go in summer. From the summit you have an excellent view to the Hochfeiler, Hochferner, Grossen Möseler, etc.
The easiest route is the N-Ridge. Difficulty is II- UIAA. You start from the Geraer Hut (2324m). There are some big bolts in this route but you need also some mountain experience. From the Hut you need about 3,5 to 4 hours. You go to the Wildlahnerscharte. If you get to the Wildlahnerscharte from the Geraer hut, crossing the Olpererferner glacier, you have to turn right and climb in southern direction over the north ridge. Go straight to the summit.
Another good way is the SE-Ridge.
