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.

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.
