Ortler Meranerweg 3,905m

Long and lonely climb to the highest peak in South Tyrol

are you ready for your adventure in the mountains?

Tour description

At 3,905m, the Ortler is the highest mountain in South Tyrol and the Tyrol region. The heavily glaciated mountain is the main peak of the Ortler Alps in the southern Eastern Alps. Its first ascent in 1804 on the orders of Archduke John of Austria is one of the most important mountaineering achievements of that time.
The Ortler is now considered one of the most important summit destinations in the Eastern Alps. The normal route leads north to the summit. All climbs to the Ortler are demanding alpine tours. The Ortler north face is actually the largest ice wall in the Eastern Alps. Other climbs include the Hintergrat, the normal route from the Payerhütte and the Hochjochgrat.

detailed description

Meeting with your experienced South Tyrolean mountain guide in Trafoi at the Three Wells. The long path to the Ortler via the Meranerweg begins here. The ridge is also known as Pleisshorngrat and has been renovated in recent years. The first stage starts at the Holy Three Wells and takes us to the Berglerhütte (approx. 1.5 hours). We spend the night here. Your mountain guide will explain the next day's tour to you so that everything runs smoothly.
The next day we climb together to the summit of the Ortler via the Pleisshorngrat, also known as the Meranerweg. We can enjoy the solitude on this climb. There is a lot less going on here than on the much more well-known climbs such as the normal route or the Hintergrat. With a maximum climbing difficulty of II UIAA, this climb is also the easiest on the 3,905m high Ortler.
The descent takes place via the normal route. At the Payerhütte, however, we turn left north and reach the Berglerhütte again. From here we will soon return to Trafoi to start our tour.
