|Went up with a French man and a local guide. Got a bollocking for walking badly on an exposed stretch. Glorious climb, airy from the Rottalsattel onwards. Not much space at the top for what was quite a crowd - including Evelyne Binsack, just back from Everest. Staggering views especially of the north faces at the head of the Lauterbrunnen valley. Long hard slog at the end across the glacier on return to the Jungfraujoch.|

|Nice day out, climbed it with a mate of mine, although a slightly abscured view. A wee bit crowded too, but that's to be expected.|

|Climbed with Monica Spicker - a beautiful clear day - could see most of the peaks in the Berner Oberland. Buzzed by the Swiss airforce while on the summit.|

|Climbed with another climber and a local guide.|
Nearly perfect weather, just a bit windy. Beautiful views from the top.
Really fun climb, but not difficult. The final ascent to the summit is somewhat exposed but there is protection in place.
There was only another group that day.
On descent, crossing the Jungfraufirn under hot sun was gruelling.

|A great tick! Really fun!|
Steve and I were happy to rope up for the final snowslope but it was quite moderate with rewarding views. 2.5 hours from Jungfraujoch, having left Zürich that morning - purists need not take the train, but it makes for an easy day trip- or a weekend combined with y few other Bernese Oberland peaks. A great ski warmup for the PDG.
Can you imagine what it would be like if the Jungfrau Bahn was successful in their initial goal of putting the train line all the way to the summit?
Try to avoid the tempting high line to maintain altitude when coming from the Joch- it takes you across a very steep slope above a crevasse. In later spring there are also some significant giant crevasses at the low point of the traverse towards the Jungfrau.

|Mathias Zehring||Route Climbed: normal route via Rottalsattel Date Climbed: August 10th 1986|
|This was my first 4000m-peak. I succeeded with a group from the german alpine club though some not ideal circumstances: two days after the return from a 3-week-holiday in Canada with some overweight, the jetlag, 3 nights with very few sleep and no acclimatization after taking the train to the Jungfraujoch. I would not recommend this tactic.|

|intended to fly the paraglider down to Lauterbrunnen valley...unfortunately when we arrived at the summit clouds came in and we couldn´t fly...went back to Jungfraujoch...and did on the way back a short paraglider flight to the glacier from where we hike up to Jungfraujoch...quite disappointing...would have been a 3.000 m flight to Lauterbrunnen|
