il.rocciatoreRoute Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: may 2017  Sucess!


Difficult start on steep and hard / frozen slopes behind Finsteraarhornhütte. Harscheisen necessary! Higher up the slope eases. No problems to reach the Hugisattel. Entertaining rock climbing along NW Ridge, never too difficult. Splendid views from the summit.

Smooth descent on skis and still a small push to reach the Grünhornlücke in the afternoon. Descent in heavy snow to Konkordia and another push on the stairs to the Konkordiahütte.

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

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.

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2006


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.

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!

ArtoiriusRoute Climbed: Normal route from Finsteraarhornhütte Date Climbed: August 11th, 2005  Sucess!


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!

bbirtleRoute Climbed: Normal Route (from Finsteraarhorn Hutte) Date Climbed: May 4, 2005  Sucess!


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.

EelconlRoute Climbed: Huggisattel Date Climbed: August 2004


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.
