Beautiful climbing on the Gletschhorn South Ridge. A classic ridge climb on very solid granite. Picture: Catho.

Looks like it must have been a blast. Way to get out there and get it done.

The climbing was awesome! Although it was not the best day in the mountain, because the weather turned out to be pretty bad.

Thanks Rob. I'm only 'posing' on this picture. The rock in the entire Uri Alps Group is spectacular. The best steep granite you can imagine.

Cheers, Jurgen

I love ridges and traverses. You usually move alot faster and stay warmer than on harder steeper routes.Climbersthat limit themselves to only hard route don't know what they are missing. Cheers!

Thanks for your comment, its so true. I'm not in the mountains to hang on a belay for hours. Most important for me is to switch between al kinds of climbing routes now and then. Cheers.
