I climbed this peak several times cs 1976-1977. Would fly in on Friday evemning from Hagen to Keglsugl, borrow the key to the research hut, then walk up arriving in the dark; a quick snooze then up ca 1:00 a.m. to follow the trail up the hanging valley then onwards to the peak to watch the sunrise.
Was very luck re weather - always clear and cold; saw snow on one occasion. Remember a bad accident with a hiking buddy - his stove blew up and burned his face. He went into shock so we piled our sleeping bags onto him and fed him hot chocolate. Turned out okay.
