Ascent Trip ReportWe were lucky with the weather and managed to summit between storms. On the first day we hiked up from the Lucknerhaus car park to the Studlhutte where we met our guide before moving on to the Erzherzog Johann hütte. There was fresh snow overnight and occasional spin drift in the morning making the climb to the summit a bit more interesting, still plenty of people attempting the climb.
