schmid_thStarting point for Lauteraarhorn?


Voted 10/10

I am thinking of climbing Lauteraarhorn this summer, so I informed me of climbing possibilities, huts etc.
But I have never heard that it makes sense to climb Lauteraarhorn from Gleckstein hut. I think this takes much too long time.
Could you add the times and difficulties for the routes from Gleckstein hut?
Missed this hut at sp for Wetterhorn climb - thanks for adding.
Cheers Thomas

Hi and thanks,
I have seen Lauteraarhorn listed as an option from the Gleckstein Hut in several sources. Without knowing in detail I think it includes traversing the Schreckhorn which in no way is the obvious way for climbing the Lauteraarhorn. I will try to look into it some more.

The traverse from Schreckhorn is extremely dangerous, nearly no possibility to secure and 7-8 h from Schreckhorn hut. So from Gleckstein hut some more hours and the most difficult part at the end. So this route normally makes no sense. (I don´t want to make suicid! ;-))
