abogaRoute Climbed: Mittellegi Ridge Date Climbed: August 19, 2002  Sucess!


Climbed it with an old friend in perfect weather. The new hut is great and the keeper even better (helluva homemade soup in there). The route is absolutely covered in fixed line, offering some rather amusing batman moments. As for the quality of the rock.. well the rumours are true. How that pile stays standing is simply beyond me, Alex reckoned it was stuck together with Eigersnot. Indeed! We descended the south ridge (upon popular reccomendation) and enjoyed a couple more tasty moments on gneiss for the return trip. Certainly a classic!

Climbed with Dres Schild & Regula Furrer. The weather was not the best - cloudy, windy, and cloud caps periodically forming on the Mönch and Eiger. About the top third of the mountain was badly iced up. We joined up with two other parties for the descent so we could share ropes for longer and more efficient rappels.

Do not underestimate the West Flank - it is big, steep, and treacherous.
