Gleirscher Fernerkogel

The Gleirscher Fernerkogel, also Gleirschfernerkogl, formerly called the Roßkarspitze, is a mountain, 3,189 m (AA), in the Southern Sellrain Mountains, a subgroup of the Stubai Alps. It rises in the Austrian state of Tyrol. The old name, Roßkarspitze, was given to it during the military survey of the region in the 1850s. The first documented ascent was undertaken on 1 September 1883 by Ludwig Purtscheller and Hans Schöller, a “professor from Salzburg”. Purtscheller gave the mountain its present name. A prominent 500-metre-long ridge runs eastwards from the unimposing summit.
