a long but great day was climbing Bishorn from turtmann hut. We reached the summit ato 3pm or so, all alone as last group, while the mountain was crowded the whole morning. Perfect day until evening with great views

Just an easy stroll to what I thought was just a high point on the ridge connecting it to the Weisshorn. Still a pleasant day and beautiful view.

My first 4000er, very easy snow slog up and down. Boy was it cold up there... It was already -7 C at the hut and on the summit it must have between -10 and -15 C, an additional ferocious wind made it seem like a polar expedition. But the view to the magical Weisshorn and almost all 4000ers of the alps made it well worth it! Unforgettable experience.

We came from Turtmanntal which is a nice alternative to the boring Zinal-ascent. We started from the well kept Turtmannhütte and went down passing by Cab. de Tracuit and further down into Zinaltal.
Nice views on the summit on a cold but clear day.

Climbed this the day after the Bruneckhorn-northface. A lot of new snow. We took a line left of the big serracs, where in normal conditions you find mostly rocks. Not really a classic.

Nice glacier walk for the beginning of your mountaineering holiday. Take care of the big crevasse just before the summit! And there are many crevasses in front of the Tracuit hut. My first 4000m-mountain. Pictures at my website: www.climbingtours.net

Together with my brother. Windy, sunny, cold weather. 20 Cm fresh snow, so messy approach over the glacier. Rather small ridge to the top, a bit scary, with the strong winds. Very nice view around.

An enjoyable climb for training with the most beautiful look at the connecting ridge to the mighty Weisshorn.

What a stormy night it had been!!! It sometimes seemed like we were in an airplane instead of the sleeping-rooms. It was still storming heavily when we had breakfast and we waited together with the guides and their customers for first day light, to see whether we could see anything. But then as a total surprise... at half past five, it stopped snowing, and ten minutes later it cleared out totaly. The wind, however, remained quite heavy. The glacier-walk to the summit got some true arctic characteristics. So cold!!!



I shot a few video-images on the col between the two summits.. It almost looks like footage from the everest south col, except no bottles and tents... My two fellow rope-mates, totaly unrecognisable (because of the way we were dressed to keep the wind from our faces and bodys), in a wind-swept scenery with lots of powdersnow flying around, and a gailforce wind that made talking to each other almost impossible.



Fortunately, under the summit we could stand out of the wind for the first time since we left the hut, and enjoy a splendid view which none of us had expected after such a rough night.
