Synopsis

Of all the many Alpine areas, few can match the Stubai in the Austrian Tyrol as a venue for a first Alpine season. Shapely peaks, good paths and some of the best huts in the Alps make it ideal for the novice who wants to extend their experience beyond Britain. This second edition of the guide describes two celebrated routes, the Stubai Rucksack Route and the Stubai Glacier Tour. The Stubai Rucksack Route is an ideal route for the novice mountain walker, and links eight huts without crossing glaciers or difficult passes. The Stubai Glacier Route - known as the Hohen Weg - is a hut-to-hut tour through the best of the Stubai that crosses glaciers and has ample opportunities for ascents of easy peaks. Both routes can be accomplished in eight to ten days. Both tours are given their own brief introduction with profiles of the route and other vital information to enhance your experience of each area. The routes are illustrated with colour photographs and sketch maps, and the Introduction provides vital transport, language, accommodation and equipment information.

A engineer by profession, Allan Hartley has spent the majority of his working life overseas engaged on major construction projects. However throughout this time he has maintained his close links with Austria, which he discovered totally by accident in the early 1970s in respite from atrocious weather conditions in the higher mountains of the western Alps. He maintains that Austria and the Dolomites of neighbouring Italy remain one of mountaineering's best kept secrets with their heady mix of superb scenery, good huts and first-class food, and are areas better suited to the average mountaineer than the higher mountains to the west. In addition to Austria, Allan has climbed extensively throughout the Alps, together with East Africa and the Greater Ranges in Nepal and Pakistan, and lesser known Zagros mountains of Iran and, more recently, the Hajr mountains of the Arabian peninsula. Not surprisingly, the author is a long-term member of the Austrian Alpine Club. When not abroad, the author's home is on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.
