History

View historical timeline

Schon in der "Heldenzeit" des Wiener Alpinismus häufig zu Übungszwecken beklettert; eine Zeit lang existierte sogar ein Kletterverbot in der Klause. Dies konnte aber eifrige Erschließer nicht abhalten....! Der Haupterschließer dieses Gebietes war der tödlich verunglückte Bergführer Alfred Riedl, ihm verdanken wir, dass wir in diesem Gebiet noch klettern dürfen!
