CautiousRoute Climbed: Hohlaubgrat Date Climbed: August 1994  Sucess!

Cautious

An easy climb once you get across the glacier. Britannia Hut is probably the worst Alpine hut in which I've stayed.

Mister White

First, we hiked from Saas Almagell to the winterraum of Brittania hut.

2 day's later we climbed Allalinhorn with a prefect blue sky, but windy ( 50km/h ) conditions. This resulted in freezing temperatures. There was a lot of snow and ice in the rock section, wich made it a bit more difficult to climb... We were alone at the summit and had a great view !

A fantastic traverse of the mountain from the Britannia hut, wonderful Alpine dawn, blue sky, crisp snow and a great view across to the Matterhorn from the summit.

Climbed twice from Langfluh hutte. The first time I was alone. The weather was partly cloudy but there was a lot of sun. The snow was wonderful. I was with Marantz in a tent in Langfluh the night before. The second time I was with Lele and the day after we climbed Alphubel. Weather perfect!!!

Together with my brother. Very nice weather. Though you can get there fairly easy (cable way) and lots of people climb it, it stays a nice mountain with a fantastic view around.

Sunday:

Hohlaubgrat under threatening storms and snowing practicaly all the time... The rock step at the end of the ridge was totaly powdered, quite tricky. Especialy with the memory of the east-face from last year's trip to Strahlhorn, thinking that it was just a few feet to the left of me at that moment. Practicaly no view from summit. But nevertheless, it was a very nice route, and I'll definitely do it again (hopefully in better conditions then)



Tuesday: A few friends wanted to do the normal-route, so we went up again, and since the weather was much better this time, it was more than worth it. It still remains one of the best views in the alps.

Very easy mountain, easy glacier, within 1 hours and 30 minutes at the summit. Nice view on the summit., but not really a 4000-er. Too bad there are a lot of people who are going to the summit.

1996: A climb I'll never forget. Only eleven years old and my first ascent of a mountain ever. And immediately a fourthousander too. Hopefully the beginning of a neverending story ...

2004: We made an early start, the weather was nice, the conditions too and we were progressing very fast when the weather started ruining our climb. Turned back at about 3750 m in a snowstorm and freezing temperatures. Already arrived in the Britanniahut at 8 am. Anyway, I'll be back...

2006: Made a second attempt on the Hohlaub Ridge and this time we were succesful. The weather was superb, but conditions were very bad. Almost ended up in a crevasse on the Hohlaubglacier, but my companions held the rope tight. No further problems, reached the summit at 9 o'clock.

2007: Ascent of the North Ridge in superb conditions. Made it trough the summit in an hour and a half. Recommended ;-)
