Lagginhorn normal route
Two climbers following me on the last 100meters to the summit. I did the ascent solo and found no problems that day.
You should bring crampons, because the last icefield can have some blank passages (it had them when I was there).

Additional info: in july 2012 five German climbers fell of the face when passing this section on the way down and died from the 400m fall down to the glacier between Lagginhorn and Fletschhorn. It is suspected, that they slipped on blanc ice covered by fresh snow and catched each other.
