JanGHohlaubgrat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2015


Very pleasant short day climb, in the company of my son Christoph and Pierrot, a local guide. We got off the first AM Metroalpin train which stopped at the "hole" station (at ~3200 m, to avoid an overnight stay at the Britannia hut). A quick descent to the glacier and then we followed the standard Hohlaubgrat climb to the summit. For the descent we used the normal route to the Mittelallalin Metroalpin station.

We had very soft snow conditions because of the prevalent heat wave in the area. We encountered countless crevasses during the ascent and even on the "easy"descent route!

2nd ascent of this peak for me following solo ascent via normal route almost exactly 5 years before. This time with my son Keith and rgg we ascended via normal route and descended Hohlaubgrat to Britania Hut. A really fine day out in excellent conditions.
Much more snow than 5 years before.

Quick and dirty - but fun though. Especially if the steeper nose is climbed.

Lodewijk2nd time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2013


Our Original plan was to climb Alphubel over Feechopf from Mittelallalin. Unfortunately the weather was too bad, so we decided to go for a (fast) Allalin climb. No views at all but my two friends summitted for the first time, which was great.

Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2013


Quick climb from the Britannia hytte. Rock step was delicate due to ice and fresh snow. Climbed down this beautiful ridge.

The easiest way how to reach first 4000er and get a bit of a aclimatization..

AdamTurnerA mixed day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2012


Took the Facile route from the Alpin Metro through the top of the piste. Was a pleasant walk, good weather and my first time on glaciated terrain. The downer is the unfortunate news that a fatality occured just above us on the glacier. Apparently one of the easier 4000'ers in the Alps but every mountain can be deadly.

The next day after Strahlhorn we climbed with Kasia this nice ridge. As usual we had to wait on the narrow snowy ridge because of little traffic jam on rocky step II UIAA.Great weather and conditions, dry and warm rock. We descended via normal route ,took cable car to Felskin and hiked back to our ten. Descent to Saas Allmagel- the same day,or rather night ;)

Even an easy mountain can be somewhat difficult. We started on skis from Saas-Fee and summited in pretty bad weather. Only people on the summit.

Climbed the normal route. Conditions were absolutely perfect. Upon seeing the conditions, we really wanted to try the NE Ridge but we only brought two screws and alpine axes.
