Samuli MansikkaRoute Climbed: South east ridge Date Climbed: July 1st 2005  Sucess!

Samuli Mansikka

Alphubel was the second summit of our intended Mischabel Chain Traverse.



A thunderstorm forced Tuomas and I to set camp by the foot of the ridge the previous day. The ridge was in good condition although it was a bit icy on the upper part.

On the top we scaled the options since the storm had brought lots of snow on Täschhorn and Dom.

Our planned route over Täschhorn and Dom to Lensjoch would be in such bad condition that it would be too risky to attempt it. So we headed down to Täsch-hytte and to Täsch and made it to Zermatt the same day.

Excellent weather and wide view from the top. Somewhat complex micro-route finding through the glaciars from the piste to get to a wide avenue leading left (South) towards the summit. Suddenly gets steeper at around 4000m and skis must be deposited. Lack of recent snow made for a somewhat scetchy ascent over verglass onto the summit shelf. From there, back to softer snow. But two or three very large and scary bergshrunds made for a long zigzag ascent and a couple scary jumps across the ends. I had to do this part solo as my partner had bailed and I definitely would NOT recommend doing this part unroped!

Nice climb with Lele & Marantz. Too much wind didn't give us a good skiing. The panorama was fantastic!!

The night was fantastic: we ( Valerio, Daniele, Luigi)woke up very early and in the darkness under a full-stars deep blue sky we start the wolking along the glacers.

Many crevasses, you need to be very careful.

In the last 300m when the path sloped up suddenly, under the rising sun was unbeliveable worm.

We reach the summit in 3:20.

Magnificent view all around, strange prospective on the Mischabel.

I guess very nice with ski.

Together with my brother. Funny Flemish guy being the chief of the hut/restaurant at the cablestation. Very nice weather, quite warm. Day before 20 cm fresh snow had fallen. No track anymore. Start at the right side of the last ski-lift. Nice view again.

It is a nice small ridge from Feejoch up to Alphubeljoch. You have to search for the summit, because it is a large plateau.

In a period of really bad weather we've made the Alphubel via the SO-Ridge. There are only 2 other people at the summit and no others at any other route to the alphubel. Seems to happen not so often ...

Mathias ZehringRoute Climbed: ski route - east flank from Laengfluh Date Climbed: May 30th 1999  Sucess!

Mathias Zehring

perfect snow conditions at the last day before closing of the Laengfluh hut. There were about 80 mostly italian climbers with us on the hut and most of them on the summit (where you could play soccer) - and everyone used his mobil phone!

schadik

Probably the most interesting way to climb the Alphubel, good introduction to ridge climbing. There is some tricky route finding on the upper part of the climb. Deffinitly worth doing if you are in the area.

UlrichPrinzRoute Climbed: From Metro Alpin via Feekopf Date Climbed: 1 March 2001  Sucess!

UlrichPrinz

Tried to reach the summit with skis, but left them

soon at the rocky ridge. Continued on foot through

sometimes deep snow over feejoch (crevasses!)

Sunny day with strong wind -> freeeeezing

Beautiful view on Matterhorn all the way to Mt.Blanc.

Gui Lemmens

quiet mixed climb ( we were alone )

very cold, you meet the sun when you reach the summit. ( west face of the mountain )

last 300 m in the rock face is the hardest part of the climb ( AD+ / D )
