Ascent Trip Report

From NW, Almtalerhaus, plenty of parking, from which it's possible to see the large summit cross, but not quite the Welser Hutte, which we passed en route, standard north route via Fleischbanksattel. Trail well marked, some easy cabled and laddered sections. Chilly strong wind, clear, high cloud. 4h50 up, large red cross at highpoint with hole-marked KT trig block, also a battered old pillar which may be trig related. Very busy, well over a hundred folk, bank holiday. 30 mins at summit. Down in sunshine, soup and beer at the Welser en route. 4h20 to trailhead including hut break, down mid pm. Excellent peak, great scenery. For detailed route description see eg Petter Bjørstad's website
