Topic - Glacier approach on Grossglockner?

JohnnyW - on 21 Feb 2013
Trying to plan the logistics of a flying visit to climb Triglav and the Grossglockner in Sept, and wondered if you guys had any advice?

I am relatively experienced in the alps, and whilst I know afternoon crossings of glaciers are not a good idea, I am considering getting up to the Erz Johannhutte later in the day? Is this folly, or is the glacier often dry by that juncture in the season? We are looking at the Normal route, and want to avoid the queues for the summit, so will be going up Sunday PM for a Mon am summit hopefully.

We will be flying into Ljubliana, so any advice gratefully received, particularly on a long weekend jaunt. How would you do it?

Cheers
