Great route in fantastic conditions. Just a little cloud over the summit.

good condition on the normal ski way and the NW ridge.
Good track up to Hugisattle but very little amount of snow over 3900m. A bit of verglass on the ridge made us repell down about 20 meters while descending from top.
Nice day

Flachlandtiroler"Was lange währt wird endlich gut" (german saying)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2013
After two and a half attempts all ending in bad weather and winter conditions this time weather was perfect!
Surprisingly there was just one more team on the route. Conditions were good, solid frozen snow up to the Hugisattel and mostly dry rock on the summit crest.
Next day we descended via the Fieschergletscher, which is rarely made normally; but this year, after a snowy winter and spring the warden recommended it and gave a precise and helpful description.
Nevertheless it was a quite adventurous undertaking in majestic scenery; exciting up to the last meters before Burghütte...

Climbed via normal route (SW ridge) with Dietmar and Dan (John stayed behind due to injury). We all got to the Hugisattel - amazing views and excitign exposure down the back. Dan and I continued but turned back at last icefield due to exposure and time (we did not want to be the last ones off). Fell in bergshrund on way down! A most excellent climb. Even the approach (from First via Konkoridahutte) well worth the trip in it's own right.

I am not sure wich route we climbed, I guess it was the South-West ridge. We encountered a couples of gendarmes, one long chimney and a couple of rock climbing passages of IV.
Overall difficoulty was AD.
A great climb and a great day.

Great climb from the Finsteraarhornhut, with Helmut, a climber I met in the Konkordiahut earlier. We used the rope on the glacier, but climbed the NW-ridge from the Hugisattel free. Very windy. Thnx for joining me Helmut!

Used the skis from the Finsteraarhornhuette to the Hugisattel. From there an easy scramble (maybe UIAA I-II) to the summit. Beautiful day, blue skies, and great view!

We decided to try to summit this day, although the weather would not be very good. Therefore we marched very fast and the snow conditions were very good. In 5,5 hours we went from Finsteraarhornhütte to summit and back. Everything turned out magnificiently... Very nice summitridge and beautiful views!

Perfect weather. Cut fresh tracks up in 40cm fresh snow. Summit ridge a lot longer than it looks, but not difficult. Sweeping views everywhere. Ski down in the powder excellent, with some nice steep sections.

I was there in Summer. Had a beautiful day but my Friend did not want to do the final ridge. It looked perfect and most of the climbers did not use crampons.

The hut has been rebuild in June 2004 and is the most beautiful hut I ever slept in.

reaching the Finsteraarhorn hut took almost 9 h from Berghaus Oberaar. The next day we climbed Finsteraarhorn with good conditions. Some ice at the final ridge but we did not use the rope.
