Weather changes, rapid drop in temperature, thunderstorms, wind, fog and snow fields are objective dangers and require the right behavior on the way. Refuge hosts are experienced mountain connoisseurs, they can give good tips on the weather and the course of the trail. Lack of equipment, overestimation of one's own abilities, carelessness, poor physical condition and a wrong assessment can lead to critical situations. During thunderstorms: avoid peaks, ridges and rope belays at all costs.
GPS data and orientation aids
Available GPS data are - like hiking maps - only an orientation aid, since they can never represent an exact image or the richness of detail of a path in reality. Especially in the case of danger spots, it must therefore always be decided in the end on the basis of the conditions on the spot whether and how the further course of the path looks like.
In case of emergency, please dial the following emergency numbers:
140 - for alpine emergencies - Austria-wideNo.
112 - Euro emergency call GSM emergency call service
