Lagginhorn 4010m & Fletschhorn 3993m (exceedance):

If the Lagginhorn 4010m with the Fletschhorn 3993m combined, it is a great classic and a long tour. It is recommended, Fletschhorn and the Lagginhorn together to climb!

Route: Weissmies hut - Grüebu Glacier - Fletschhorn - Fletschjoch - North Ridge - Lagginhorn - West Ridge - Weissmies hut.

Detailed Description:

From the Weissmies hut 2726m to the point 3263m beside the Jegihorn. Then on about the Grüebu- glacier to the northwest ridge from Feltschhorn. About this firn-ridge to the Fletschhorn 3993m. Beware of the Grüebu glacier, it has large crevasses.

From Fletschhorn go down to Fletschjoch 3694m. There begins the north ridge to the Lagginhorn. This north ridge is beautiful and has a breathtaking view. The difficulty is UIAA II-III. Over the north ridge climb to the Lagginhorn 4010m.

The descent goes beyond the normal route, the West ridge (WSW ridge). The West Ridge / flank is not difficult. Under the new assessment, it is a T5-T6. It has some places where something needs to be climbed I-II.
