      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Austrian Alps Trekking

Recommended Posts

My husband has a conference in Prague this August and we'll have 9 days of free time afterwards to vacation in Europe. We are looking for a high alpine mountaineering/hiking route - hut to hut with some glacier crossings and the opportunity to do some moderate alpine climbing along the way. We've been to Chamonix on a previous trip and we loved it, but it is just a bit too far away for the limited time we have. We like Austria and it's closer to Prague, so we're looking there.


Any recommendations for 6-7 day high routes in the Austrian Alps? We got Trekking in the Zillertal Alps by Allan Hartley from the library and it looks great. There are a lot of mountains out there, though, so if you've got any good ideas or trip reports to share, please post! I know huts can fill up for August so we might want to make reservations sometime this winter.

send a PM to MVS, we did some rad stuff in the Wilder Kaiser that I am sure would fit your bill. He lives there so has all the good beta.


Have fun
