The "inverted" Venter round trip

Round tours

We do the usual round trip the other way round, visit the quiet peaks and make the most beautiful descents.

We meet at 9.00am in Vent at the Mountain Guides office – Haus Hubertus – and climb via the Rofenhöfe to the Vernagt hut 2,755 m (4 ½ hrs.). If we have the energy and motivation, after a break, we can go on a short tour to practice with the LVS devices (avalanche transceivers).

In the morning we climb to the Hochvernagtspitze 3,539 m or the Schwarzwandspitz 3,467 m (both 3 hrs.), returning to the Vernagt hut for lunch, after which we climb to the Mittleren guslarspitze 3,126 m (1 ½ hrs.). We descend directly from the summit to the Hochjoch Hospiz 2,413 m.

Todays programme is a day tour, either to the Mittlere Hintereisspitze 3,451 m (4 ½ hrs.) or the Langtauferer Spitze 3,529 m (5 hrs.). Either way we have a wonderful descent to the Hochjoch Hospiz.

Now we cross to the neighbouring valley. Via the Hauslabkogel 3,403 m (5 ½ hrs.) or the Saykogel 3,360 m (4 ½ hrs.) we arrive at the Martin Busch Hut 2,501 m in the Niedertal. Here we have the choice of a beautiful firn descent on the south-east side from the Saykogel or a wonderful powder snow descent from the Hauslabkogel over the north-east facing Say glacier.

On our last day we can either climb directly above the hut to the Kreuzkogel 3,340 m (3 hrs.) and enjoy another firn descent or take the long tour up to the Hintere Schwärze 3,628 m (6 hrs.). Either way we will return in the afternoon to Vent.
