Mountaineering basic course at the Breslauer Hütte with ascent of the Wildspitze, 3770 m

The hut: The Breslauerhütte is situated at 2,844 m above sea level. The high altitude results in short distances and plenty of time for training. The Rofenkar glacier can be reached in 45 minutes. The pleasant atmosphere in the cosy guest rooms and the support of the hut host Alex make the Breslauerhütte the perfect location for this course. Luggage transport to the hut included!
