boriskrielenNormal route from Randa via Lenzspitze, solo nonstop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2015


Started in Randa at 1,408m at 4am, followed normal route to Dom hut and further up to Festijoch. Then from the glacier I climbed up to the lenzjoch and tried to climb the Lenzspitze south ridge. Conditions were too unstable so went back down to the glacier. Then climbed Dom via the rest of the normal route. On the way down I also included the Dom West summit (4,479m). Finally descended all the way back to Randa. Total of 22 km 3,300 vertical meter in 20 hours.

Fantastic route!

Soloed this suprisingly boring ridge in perfect weather. Made tracks for the 25 followers in 20cm deep snow. 5 hours up and 2 hours down. Came down via Festigrat also.

aquariuszWe turned back
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2012


Our plan was to climb to Taschorn from the bivouac over the Domhütte and then take the ridge to Dom. We crossed the glaccier and then realized it was impossible to cross towards Taschorn due to the crevasses.

We altered our plan, descented back to the normal route to Dom and climbed up to Festijoch. It was already quite late and when we saw the pair of ropes hanging on the rock with a little negative face on the top we decided to turn back.

The way back was not completely safe. Far not. It was filled with cravesses and we had to leave the tracks many times to find a more safe pass on the glaccier. We might have risked to get on the top but the way back would have been much harder and risky. So... next time :)

Apart from this the weather was very nice and the fact we met with humans (3) only in the afternoon gave us a fantastic day.

Solo ascent. Bivvied above the hut. Normal route is quite a long and boring trip, but the views from the summit were great - it was a clear day and one could see very far in all directions.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2010


Up to the summit along Festigrat, down by normal route. Quite a long day (though it would've lasted bit shorter) due to not a very fantastic aclimatisation. However, nice route, technically - not very demanding (UIAA II at most, one moment to be frank). Good and worth recoomendation alternative to the Normal.
We summited in not perfect snow conditions ("dry" summer, more rocks visible than foreseen, so the "icy moments" were found as well).
Climbed with Igi, brade and Matti.

After a failure due to bad weather 17 Sep. 2008, here we go again. This time, after good acclimatization from Aletschhorn three days ago, I easly soloclimbed Dom via the normal route.
What a mountain. The last steps to the summit were like the staircase to heaven...
Started at around 04.00 hrs. and back down at the camping place in Randa at 20.00 hrs.

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2009


We had a bivouac 100 meters above the Domhutte, because the hut was full. We left our tent at 4:30 in the morning and reached the summit at 12:40, walking along the normal route. The weather was great all the day, not a cloud in the sky. Took some great pictures from the summit, especially the Matterhorn, seen from above with a zoom, looks impressive. Returned back to the bivouac also via the normal route, which is very long.

Slept at Dom Hütte and started around 5. 30 cm new snow made for a tough walk up the normal route. Not a cloud on the sky and most of the western part of the Alps was visible. Superb day. Walked alllll the way down to Randa same day.

Due to badweather during the night, my attempt was heavy delayed. At 0500 in the morning it rained. However, I still decided to check it out and climb up to the snowfrozen Festijoch. A slight improvement of the weather condition allowed me to continue on the Hohlaub-glacier but approximately after 1/4 part of the route it was time to turnaround taking into the consideration the unstable weather and the limited timeframe. Hopefully I will be able to try Dom during summer 2009.

I love this beatiful peak from I saw from the summit of Nadelhorn in 2007 but when we've maked 1200 km to try the climb of a mountain and the summit day the rain and the snowfall impide the ascent is really bad luck. We waked up at 2:30 but we waited the end of the rain, at 4:30... too late but we tried the climb hoping that the clouds remain... but the sun appear at 6:00 near of Festijoch and the clouds disappear...buff, at 8:00 we attacked the festigrat because the normal route was covered by the snow, and after 300m the snow was very very soft by the sun and the recent snowfall of the night. The risk to fall to glacier was evident and we descended to festijoch and the domhutte. Only 8 people climbed the summit this day across festigrat in a fast ascension starting at 4:00 and the 80% of the mountaineers don't try the summit and they went to sleep at hut.
We're in very good physical conditions, the aclimatation in Bishorn was perfect 2 days ago but it was not possible the dream!
We will return another year (I hope with good luck with the weather).

PechorinRoute Climbed: Festigrat / North Flank  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2006


We followed the ridge half of the way up from Festijoch. Then we turned into the north flank - probably a mistake as we encountered ridiculous amounts of fresh snow from the day before. Two Austrians caught up with us and helped making the track for the last 30 min up. Unfortunately, the summit was shrouded in clouds when we arrived (10:30), and we felt a little bit too cold to sit around for a long time. We took the normal route down.
I climbed with my twin brother.
