Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2006
|Short, easy, all right... but a four-thousander nevertheless. Your lungs say so when you are up there. Ideal for newcomers to high altitude. I enjoyed it, that's for sure. We came up via Mittelallalin and Feejoch.|

|It was the first 4000er we climbed. But not last. We did not enough time to climb it in 2 days because of bad weather, so we have done it during a day. Unforgettable.|
We started from Mittelallalin 3456m. There was perfect snow conditions and visibility. Easy climb, 3 hours to the top.We had fantastic view around.There was not enough place on the top because of crowd. We had to wait for a little to took some picture of us next to the summit cross. We were one and a half hour near the highest point.

|John Climber||Route Climbed: West ridge Feechopf & Feejoch Date Climbed: 28 July 2005|
|With a cordé of 4 we reached the top without incidents but always with a small threat of not stable weather in the far distance. The normal route was crowded, but 'our' way on the 150 meters II-graded broken rock ridge from Feechopf to the Feejoch was for us only. We came back the same way, via Alphubeljoch to Taschhütte|

No difficulties reaching this overcrouded summit....

|Clouds here, clouds there, clouds almost everywhere. Too bad there was nothing to see from the summit since the weather was poor. A nice and short climb though.|

|Samuli Mansikka||Route Climbed: Hohlaubgrat (East ridge) Date Climbed: June 30th 2005|
|Tuomas and I started our Mischabel Chain Traverse from the Britannia Hut and took the Hohlaubgrat up the Allallinhorn. We had a full camping set and food and gas for the need of 5 days with us so we were feeling ourselves a bit slow even though we made the route in less than the time line mentioned in topos|
During the climb the weather started closing in. Katja (Hyttenwart) warned us about the rising storm the night before so we were cautious following the situation.
We got early to the top and continued towards Alphubel.
By the time we were at Feechopf the visibility to Alphubel was gone. So we camped between Feechopf and Alphubel and had a good testing out for my new superlight tent. There was a good amount of thunder as well which is always a bit uncomfortable when You are camping in high elevations.

|We (Valerio and Daniele) the BritanniaHutte at 4:40.|
Cloudy and cold, the snow started to fall at 5, on the glacer. Right in time to take the rope.
Very nice way, some part stiped, I guess very spectacular with the nice weather. Regular progression till the rock barrier, then we waited about 1 hour a team of climbers arrived there a couple of minutes before us, that forgot to re-arrange the rope before, where the ridge is larger and there is place for the other climbers to pass away (as we have done....!!!!!!!!!).
Total time: about 4:20, but we spent about 1 hour waiting....
Foggy and very cold, the view was constantly less than 50m.
The rocky barrier was covered by 25cm of fresh new snow. Not complicate to pass, there is a short rope in the beginning, then a couple of needles very good.
In case of foggy weather, follow the ridge to the top cross.
To descend form th enormal way, pass the cross and follow the main ridge for about 10 minutes, or descending for about 100 meters, then turn a bit on the left (west) and descend the steped snowfield till the Feejoch.
Then is easy but stil steped and with very large crivasses.
Pay attention to the ice, the cornices (the descendig ridge can have some cornicies) and the crivasses. Stay away from the east side (stiped, with crevasses and seracks) and look to the map carefully.
Third time to the BritanniaHutte, very nice and clean hutte. One of the best I visited.
As a general comment: a very nice ridge. I wormly racomand it!

|Planned to do Rimpfishhorn, bailed due to bad weather in the morning. Cleared around 10:30. Easy, uneventful climb to the summit on skis. Great decent with soft afternoon spring snow. Could ski all the way to the very top, even across the summit ridge until I could touch the metal summit cross with skis still on... a true ski mountaineering summit!|
By the way, Britannia Hut one of the better mountain huts I've stayed in. Warm, comfortable common room. Clean rooms. Decent food. Expensive being it's only drawback.
