2011: Our goal was to climb the entire Nadelgrat from the Galenjoch. After climbing Chli Dirruhorn and Dirruhorn (nice scrambling and some climbing at steeper sections), we were behind schedule and decided descending in rappel through East Couloir of the Dirrujoch...bad idea! Loose rock, diagonal line for rappel, searching for anchors, downclimbing steep snow/ice, rock fall...not a place you wanna spend the afternoon. Arrived at Bordier Hut at 6.00 o'clock in the evening. Completing the entire Nadelgrat wouldn't have taken us much longer...

2012: Traversed the Nadelgrat from the Mischabelhütte to the Galenjoch. Extremely long tour! I never thought I would pass again over the summit of Dirruhorn, although in the other direction. While climbing of the North Ridge was quite straightforward, descending proved to time consuming and seemed endless. Luckily we made it in time to the Galenjoch before darkness fell in.

We climbed the Nadelgrat from the Bordier hut starting at the Galenjoch and traversing Dirruhorn, Hobärghorn & Stecknadelhorn. Galenjoch to Dirruhorn took half of the time of the whole ridge - much snow, no tracks. Decided to cross the Nadelhorn north face and descend without the summit due to the time. Most of the rock fragile, but not that difficult. Though an interesting climb in a spectacular ambiance, following this nice pearl necklet. In the afternoon the Ried glacier already was one single swampy minefield.
