Description

The ascent to the Hohe Dachstein requires sure-footedness. The route leads from the Vorderer Gosausee via the Hinterer Gosausee to the Adamekhütte. This hut offers overnight accommodation with advance reservation. The next day we will go over the moraines in about 45 minutes to the beginning of the glacier. In another two hours one crosses the Gosaugletscher up to the Windlucke. Due to the crevasses in the glacier, a rope is required. From the Windlucke an easy but very impressive climbing tour begins along the West Ridge to the summit.

Difficulty

Severe

Hiking challenging trails where simple scrambling, with the occasional use of the hands, is a distinct possibility. The trails are often filled with all manner of obstacles both small and large, and the hills are very steep. Obstacles and challenges are often unexpected and can be unpredictable.
