Ascent Trip Report

Start at Parkplatz Wiesenkreuz (1470 m) in Hinterbichl, Osttirol. From there via Johannishütte (2121 m) to Defreggerhaus (2964 m). The next day, the weather took a turn for the worse, a snow storm and high winds made the way up the glacier very dfficult. According to the GPS of our guide we reached the highest point on the ridge before we turned around. The summit cross is actually a few meters lower so it seems that we climbed Grossvenediger (3666 m) in wintery conditions!
