F Käfinger oil on canvas 'Austrian Alps'

An original oil painting
by the artist
F. Käfinger
signed and dated 1964
of ‘The end of the valley
Hintertux, near Mayrhoten,
(Austria),
showing the biggest mountain
Olperer (3325 m)’

Image size 535x455mm. Framed

The first climb of the Olperer was about 1879
by Paul Grohmann, Jakob Samer and Jakob
Huber via SE-Ridge. Many people climb this
mountain. You can go in winter and in summer.
Most people go in summer. From the summit
you have an excellent view to the Hochfeiler,
Hochferner, Grossen Möseler, etc.
The easiest route is the N-Ridge. Difficulty is
II- UIAA. You start from the Geraer Hut (2324m).
There are some big bolts in this route but you
need also some mountain experience. From
the Hut you need about 3,5 to 4 hours. You go
to the Wildlahnerscharte. If you get to the
Wildlahnerscharte from the Geraer hut, crossing
the Olpererferner glacier, you have to turn right
and climb in southern direction over the north
ridge. Go straight to the summit.
