Highest peak of the Stubai Alps, a range of the central eastern alps.

The shape of north face which is completely covered with consolidated snow (firn)

    Great weather. We also went up the small summit next to the main summit. Crevasses were quite open.

    Together with my friends Johan De Greve (B) en Roman Riml (A), we climbed this mountain, allthough I had a difficult time. We took the car from Sölden tot Fiegl's Alpengasthof in the Windachtal....

    Fucking fog, didn't see a damn thing. But a great experience anyway. We were the first to go up that day, we simply coudn't miss the enormous tracks on the glacier. Great view, all white.

    We came from the Sulzenau hut, traversed the Sulzenau glacier and reached the summit via the east ridge. After enjoying the view, we continued to the Wilde Pfaff and descended to the Mueller hut....
