After a lot of snowfall the previous 2 days we ascended to Tracuit after the wait in Zinal because the next day the prediction was good. In a long route with snow from 2500m without views of the signals in many points with fog, snowfall,... we reached the cabane de Tracuit after more than 5 hours and we've very tired. We were lucky at night with a beautiful sunset in the refuge. The next day was perfect, one of the best days in panorama in my visits to Alps. To some of my friends it was their first 4000m and I was very happy to help them to make real their dream. A day to remember long time with the impressive vision of a long panorama.
It's not a very important peak, the route is easy,... but the effort is long and the reward is wonderfull. It's a very advisable peak to know the Alps. I love this small peak.

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.

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.

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.
