Kristalwand (3310m)

  • DAY9 REST DAY: attempted the Simmonyspitz, but aborted due to bad snow conditions – watched a very large avalanche instead!
  • DAY10: Crossed Maurer Torl (3105 m) and over Obersultzbach glacier to the Kursinger Hütte (2558m). A very very long day
  • DAY11  REST DAY: climbed Keeskogel (3291m) a nice rocky summit for a change
  • DAY12: Up to the Venediger Schart (3414 m) across glaciers and down to the Neue Prager Hütte (2796 m) for our second visit. Some interesting navigation in thick fog & snow!
  • DAY13: Descended (and reascended) to the Further Weg and on to the Neue Fürther Hütte (2201 m)
  • DAY14: a long descent to Hollersbach and a bus to Mittersill
