route_description

Pforzheimer Hütte - along the plateau - Gleirscher Ferner - down to 2150m - up to Pforzheimer Hütte - St-Sigmund

weather and conditions


Sun and S wind


20-30cm of power on the glacier below 2850m
big blocks of ice on the top of the glacier (not sure where they came from)
wind blow snow in the valley.

And not much snow below 2000m (but it's a road, so you don't need much)

avalanches

Triggered a small slab avalanche on a steep slope trying to climb go over a ridge (looked like an old moraine): layer of fresh snow on top of wind-packed snow. I was kind of expecting it, so it wasn't a problem, but we turned around and went down lower to cross the ridge were it was more rocky

timing

8h30 Pforzheimer Hütte
12h30 Gleirscher Ferner
15h00 Pforzheimer Hütte
17h00 St-Sigmund

personal comments

Good thing that we were the first to leave the hut, and first to go down, because the glacier with all the nice fresh snow got very crowded as we were leaving it...
