Wildspitze (3.774 m) high tour course
Learn mountaineering with summit ascent Wildspitze (3,774 m)
If you want to improve your skills and knowledge, where better than with a mountain professional on a high altitude tour?
The Wildspitze, the highest peak in Tyrol, offers everything that makes a real high-altitude tour: wild glaciers, mixed terrain, easy climbing, an exposed summit ridge and a fantastic summit. The normal route from the Breslauer Hütte is extremely varied. In short stages, it first leads along stony paths through moraine terrain, then via a high alpine via ferrata to the Mitterkarjoch (3,470 m). Here the scenery changes from rock to ice. The remaining 300 m are divided into the rugged Taschachferner and the initially wide, later steep and exposed summit ascent. The aim of the alpine touring course is to independently carry out easy and moderately difficult alpine tours with glacier ascents. You will learn and improve specific safety techniques as well as the necessary crampon and climbing techniques.
Your mountain and ski guide will train with you the basics for easy and moderate high altitude tours before the summit tour. This includes the elementary crampon and belay technique, but also suitable tour planning, rescue techniques and crevasse rescue.
The Breslauer Hütte awaits you as a base for this high altitude course.

"In the summer of 2022, when there was little snow, the normal route to the Wildspitze was a victim of climate change and endangered by falling rocks. The critical spot has since been cleared, but we will continue to monitor the situation and then switch to alternative routes.
The good thing is that the alternatives are no less eventful and instructive. So ideal for a high tour training with mountain guide:in."

Private mountain guide:in
Want a dream tour? We will gladly organize an optimally qualified guide for you and your friends, family or company. Over 80 mountain guides are looking forward to your dream tour. They have made their hobby their profession and will accompany you with great commitment after meticulous preparation. There are almost no limits: From
Mont Blanc with preparation
The ascent of the highest mountain in the Alps at 4,807m is not only a special experience, but requires a fair amount of fitness, mastery of crampon technique and perfect tactics to take advantage of a good weather window for the summit day well acclimatized. The three normal routes are also subject to strong changes due to climate change, which we take into account in the tour planning.
Ötztal Alps Crossing
The Ötztal Alps are a high-altitude touring region in a class of its own. The most beautiful and highest three-thousand-meter peaks of the Ötztal can be perfectly combined on technically relatively easy ascents during this touring week. The absolute highlight is the ascent of the highest Tyrolean peak, the 3,774m high Wildspitze.
Four-thousand-metre peaks in the Valais (spaghetti round)
The "Spaghettirunde" with up to 10 four-thousand-meter peaks is one of the most beautiful and popular ridge and four-thousand-meter tours in the Alps. The climbs are technically considered relatively easy, but you should still bring high altitude touring experience and especially a very good condition for up to 10h mountaineering.
The lightest 4000
Breithorn (4,165m), Strahlhorn (4,190m), Allalinhorn (4,027m), Bishorn (4,153m) and Alphubel (4,206m) are considered technically easy four-thousanders. Nevertheless, the normal routes are anything but boring "glacier hikers". The panorama from the individual peaks is simply phenomenal and a fair reward for the efforts.
Fit on the glacier and on high altitude tours
The goal of the high altitude course is the independent execution of easy high altitude tours with glacier climbing. You will learn and improve specific belaying techniques as well as the necessary crampon and climbing techniques.
Großglockner (3.798 m) high tour course
The Großglockner, the highest peak in Austria, offers everything that makes a real high altitude tour. Before the ascent to the summit, your mountain and ski guide will train with you the basics for easy and medium-difficulty high-altitude tours.
