After the first ascent of Grossglockner in 1800 this route became the standard way to climb the summit. It lead from Heiligenblut through the Leiter valley. Nowadays this route is a real insiders tip! It is not that high frequented than the normal route from Kals and its fantastic landscape is a real pleasure to see! Starting from Glockner House (car parking, public transport) the Salm Hut is reached within 2,5 hours! From there on our guides lead you safely to the via ferrata up to the Hohenwart Gap and within 3 hours the Adlersruhe Hut is reached! After spending the night there the summit can be reached within 1,5 hours! The descent follows the same way.
