    In a board entry from 11. August I found a message that at the moment they are a must to cross the glacier (blank ice).

    As long as you're not extremely fit and well trained I would not recommend to make this as a one day tour. Better to stay in the Höllentalangerhütte and start early from there on the 2nd day.
    2.200 altitude meters (that's really a lot for one day)
    category "C" (difficult)
