|Flachlandtiroler||Traverse Konkordiahut -> Finsteraarhut |
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2013
|Traverse from Konkordia hut to Finsteraarhorn hut via Grünegghorn to summit and rappelling from the "Lücke" down to Fieschergletscher.|
Traversing Grünegghorn was quite interesting due to lack of steps plus clouds coming in; the summit arrete of Grossgrünhorn was mostly dry and not difficult at all, leaving only the bergschrund as a (little) challenge.
Hardest part was the rappel route (!). We easily found the begin but although we had a detailed briefing at the hut and carefully investigated the terrain we failed to follow the stances... like all the others, too.
So after 3 or 4 pitches we ended at improvised slings in vertical rubbish and it took us nearly two hours for perhaps 150 vertical meters.

|I climbed this peak with German climber Helmut Risse. We did the complete ridge from the saddle, no shortcuts. And we both climbed it free.|

|Samuli Mansikka||Via Klein Grünhorn |
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2006
|My original plan for the day was only to traverse both of the Fiescherhorns starting early from the Mönchjochhütte. However, I approached the Klein Grünhornlücke relatively fast so I headed to Klein Grünhorn and then to Gross Grünhorn. I arrived to the summit of Gross Grünhorn 3,5 hours after starting from the hut. On the same day I traversed over the Fiescherhorns back to the Mönchjochhütte.|
Quite a demanding climb due to the bad quality of the rock and the steepness of the route.

|Uneventful climb up in perfect weather. Easy scrambling on the summit ridge. Good spring conditions skiing down, and nice long steep open glaciar bowl. Good fun.|
