Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2009


Climbed from Bordierhut via Gross Bigerhorn and returned the same way. I was alone and had the hut and the mountain for myself - the advantage of beeing there out of season.

Made the traverse of the Balfrin when heading to the Bordierhütte coming from the Mischabelhütte. The rocky part starting from the Riedpass is easy, as well as the snowy ridges. The biggest obstacle is descending Balfrins NE face when going to the Gross Bigerhorn, this is quite steep and difficult when icy.

This was a nice trip to start the holidays. It is not hard and the distance is OK. Good look at Nadelgrat. Back to Bordierhut big crevasses. Watch it!!!!

I remember that we had to go up very early at 3 a.m. because a that unpleasant time is the breakfast at Bordier hut for those who intend to climb the Nadelgrat. The traverse of Groß-Bigerhorn first was rocky, but easy, to the two summits of Balfrin there was hard firn that required crampons. Fine view to the Nadelgrat. After Balfrin we descended to Riedpass and traversed Ulrichshorn to Mischabel hut.

Its was the beginning of a long trip, starting from the Bordierhut via Gross Bigerhorn and than the Balfrin NW finally the Top.

Very nice climbing over the ridge (UIAA 1+). Standing here you have a very nice view to de Nadelhorn and Stecknadelhorn.

Descending to the Riedglacier over Ulrichshorn 3925m, down to Windjoch and Mischabelhut
