From the parking lot on the Treunitzer Wand we walk about 400 m into the Paradiestal. Then the rock is on the left side of the path.
The Vordere Paradiestalwächter is a small, manageable, not too high rock with 9 routes from 4 to 7 with a nice approach and child-friendly wall base. Diverse routes with holes, cracks, hangers and light roofs characterize the wall. Very nice.

4:00 am Breakfast at the Kürsinger hut, 4:30 am departure for Großvenediger. Finish north ridge ascent, but I already dreamed the day before after seeing all the snow that it might not be possible. When we were up on the glacier to make the turn, we briefly discussed and decided that it was too dangerous to climb into the snow-covered ridge.
So all that was left was the normal route via the Venice Gate. Too bad, so we dragged our climbing equipment up for free.
In addition, due to the rain the day before, the snow was so sultry and only slightly frozen that we broke in 30 cm with every step.
Then there was the wind, which was getting stronger.
These were not ideal conditions.
Nevertheless, we tortured ourselves up to the summit. The winner was the fog soup ^^.
All in all it was a demanding rough tour for us, and I'm a little less scared of ice and snow ^^.

The first real mountain tour this year was supposed to be the Großvenediger, namely over the north ridge. The announced heat wave without disturbing influences such as thunderstorms, rain etc. was over before it started. But we didn't want to give up a cabin and vacation now.
So we drove 4 1/2 hours to Pinzgau and made the difficult ascent to the "Kürsinger Hütte" in poor weather.
The first hurdle right at the start. The parking fee of € 8 can only be paid with coins. After scraping everything together, we still lacked 40 cents. So we went begging ^^, with success. A nice lady gave us the toads.
So we could finally set off. Every now and then a little shower and sometimes a ray of sunshine accompanied us through the valley.
After a short refueling stop at the nice landlady on the Postalm, things got a bit far behind in the wild glacier valley. First rain, then more rain and hail and when we were in the middle of the via ferrata there was also lightning and thunder. Quickly shifted up a gear, then we had arrived at our daily goal, the Kürsingerhütte.

The upper Muggendorf walls offer great, sometimes well-secured routes, which can be a little brittle.
On the far left are long, very well-secured routes between 4th and 6th degrees of holey rock. In the middle is an overhang route (8th degree). In the right part there are some slab climbs between 5th and 7th degrees, on the far right crack and intersection climbing. Since the rock quality is not excellent everywhere, it is advisable to wear a helmet.
