Very nice climb in perfect weather. That made up for the previous day when I made my way up to the Weissmiess Hut in the pouring rain and thick fog...and got lost. Eventually I did stumble upon the hut and saved myself :-)

[X] BirdRoute: Fletschorn-Lagginhorn Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2009

[X] Bird

Climbed a little couloir (35 degrees steep) to gain the south-west ridge. Then on crumbly rock to the summit and from there continued with the traverse to Lagginhorn. Great mountain though, not as busy as some other mountains in the area just because it is not 4000m :P

I would not recommend the south-west ridge of the Fletschorn, too much lose rock and no interesting climbing. Rather take the normal route, nicer and quicker. Especially if you do Fletschorn as part of the traverse you need your time so take the normal route.

It would be a beautiful day, but there were clouds till 3600 meters. Above the clouds the view was beautiful. In four hours we were on the summit along way to go to the Laginhorn!

il.rocciatore

Started with good weather the first time, but when we reached the col at about 3600m, the weather turned bad. It became very cold, windy, and visibility was less than 20 meters...for us the sign to turn back.

Only a week later we were there again. This time we roped up with 2 Swiss guys. We started at 4 o'clock in the morning and reached the summit by 7 o'clock. No clouds and an amazing atmosphere. Too bad my camera failed up there :os

Continued with the traverse to the Lagginhorn.

Mathias ZehringRoute Climbed: normal route Date Climbed: Sept. 9th 1988; Aug. 5th 1991, July 29th 2004  Sucess!

Mathias Zehring

I've been there three times, each time with fine weather and good conditions

1988 I managed after the climb, on the way back over the even glacier to the trail to the hut, to fall, land with my hand on the edge of my ice axe and hurt it so bad that I could not go to Weissmies the other day, what was much worse than the pain.

1991 we proceeded to the Lagginhorn, which is a very fine traverse.

2004 we did the same again as my friends had not done this yet.

FarmerRoute Climbed: normalroute and N-face-Breitlaub ridge Date Climbed: aug 1995 and 13 Aug 2000  Sucess!

Farmer

Been twice on this beautiful mountain.



First time normalroute from Weismiesshut. Easy glacierwalk PD. 2 time N-face(wienerroute) from bivac 40-60’ D+. Excellent conditions until Thunderstorm came. 2 hours from begin face to Wachte. I have been chopping my ass of getting though the

corniche!! 1h. Im very sorry for that, and hope the mountain has recovered since my brutal attack...... Lucky for us the storm passed us quickly. On top at sunrise, very good. Descended via the Breitlaui ridge, loose rocks all over..

Fred Spicker

Climbed with Monica Spicker. 1987 was a terrible weather year in the Swiss Alps. This day was very windy and cold with the mountain in and out of cloud. A group from Norway that arrived on the summit shortly after us declared that we had just made "The first winter ascent in summer."

Rahel Maria LiuRoute Climbed: Northface/Wienerroute Date Climbed: July/26/2001

Rahel Maria Liu

The Northface of the Fletschhorn is a really classic one! But it is objectively dangerous because of icefall and stonefall, especially if it's becoming warm in the morning and at noon.



We climbed the short cut from the northface to the W-ridge and did not climb the 20 to 30 min. on the W-ridge to the summit, since bad weather was coming. So we rushed down and reached the Weissmieshut just in that moment when the thunderstorm started. So we really had luck.
