Grossglockner Climbing Notes

Dusan from SLOVAKIA writes:

Pallavicini couloir 8-10.5.2013 - conditions medium difficulty, melt snow, temperature close to 0°C, danger of falling heavy pieces of ice, rocks and possible small avalanches. Couloir possible to climb - start early morning to be at the saddle in the middle of Klein and Gross Glockner latest at 10-11am. After this time couloir becomes dangerous. Ice in last 2 pitches is not good, be prepared for mix climbing with lot's of water on rocks.
