weather and conditions


Cloudy with some sun in the morning, then cloudy and foggy. Snow in the afternoon


Went up the Alpeinerferner, then the Verborgenen Bergferner. We were not sure where the Turmscharte was, we met another group that was also looking for it. They told us there should be some fixed ropes, but we didn't see them.

There were some tracks in a narrow snow couloir where a group climbed a bit before. Around 45° for about 50m, so we decided to follow them, which was fine except for a large smooth boulder in the middle where there was a tricky move to climb. (Tricky with skiing boots at least), which made us waste time. There was some kind of horn higher from which I could belay Martha.

Apparently, the scharte was ~30m to the east, and very easy to pass with the fix ropes...

Very foggy at the top of the scharte, so we went to the Vorderer Wilder Turm (skipping the Hinterer Wilder Turm), and followed the tracks down the Turmferner that were from an earlier group.

access_comment

Train Vienna -> Innsbruck
Bus Innsbruck -> Milders
Then 5h walk from Milders to Franz-Senn Hütte (on ski the last 200m) the day before.

hut_comment

The Franz-Senn Hütte is very comfortable: hot showers, lots of food (enough to make sandwiches for lunch), vegetarian option, friendly people.

personal comments

Nice route, would have been better with a bit more visibility. Good things that there were some tracks to go down, the passage through the cliff is easy to miss.
