Azamat Gaysin from Czech Republic
Attempt to accent on 11-12 of November.
starting from 2000m about 1m of snow.
After Studdlehutte (2800) more than 1.5m of Snow!
I was on split-board and I had fun, but my friends were on snow-shoes and for them it was terrible.

4th to 7th Dec
Very demanding through the lot of new snow (circa 50-80cm). Two unsuccessful attempts to reach either summit or the Erz.Joh. Hütte. Stüdlegrat almost impossible, Normalweg almost the same. We finished cca 150m bellow the cottage because of the weather (sometimes white out) and a lack of time. Very slow ferrata ascend (cables and steels under the snow and ice). Sometimes necessary to make temporary anchors for belaying.
Weather was not so harsh, almost sunny but the danger of avalanches. About 8 degrees below zero.

Dusan from Slovakia
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.
