Andrew HagenW ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2006

Andrew Hagen

Climbed a little late in the day (because we started at Almagellerhutte and did Weissmies first). Didn't need crampons to get up (so it's true what they say), but used them on the way down because it was just so slippery!

Alone all the way up and down, except of four climbers I met near the summit. Rather demanding scrambling at some places, I deviated from the (original) route a couple of times. Spent about 40 minutes alone at the summit enjoying the views around!

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2006


The day before I started with my mountainbike from Brig to Saas Almagell where I slepped. The next morning I started by bike again to Kreuzboden, where I hide it. From here I hiked up to the top and all the way back to Brig again

We opened the route for the summer. And it took us a lot of sweat too. Still lot's of snow, and not the hard kind that we all wished for. It took us a gruelling 13 hours to go up and back. But we made it, all seven of us in two cordees. Started of with good weather, but ended up in a snowstorm on our way down. A good choice for your first 4000er.

Together with 4 friends we made the west ridge it was cold and windy - but nice to climb. We climbed the complete ridge in the rocks and needed no crampons.

After traversing the Weissmies the previous day I climbed the Lagginhorn from the Weissmieshütte. A fun route almost entirely on rock. However there was plenty of compact snow on the steeper section near the summit.

It was my second tour and at the joch between Fletschhorn en Laginhorn I was very tired....it was a long way up from there but a beautiful route! It was a great moment when we where on the top with many clouds under us! the normal route is very easy! there was almost a path...

Started at night in Saas Grund and made it in a very long daytrip - o.k. took the cablecar on the way down. Perfect conditions on that day!

A nice outing with two girls met on the cablecar on the way up (I was meaning to solo it). Was glad to have the company as the climb itself is quite boring, although not very long. Rope not even needed... more of a hike than a climb. I give it F+, not PD. Nice sunrise parorama over the Mischebel Range.

il.rocciatoreRoute Climbed: North Ridge / South Ridge Date Climbed: july 2005 / august 2011  Sucess!


2005: We made a very good time to the base of the North Ridge and the weather was stable. A chance of a lifetime to complete the traverse with Fletschhorn. But difficulties starts here. It takes some time to become comfortable climbing on crampons in a running belay at this height. Happily there was a party before us to show the right way, which made things a little easier :o) Reached the summit at 10 o'clock.

2011: Climbed the South Rige from the Lagginjoch in difficult conditions. Cold, wind and ice made it a hard climb, which lasted a lot longer than indicated by the topo guide. Nevertheless made it to the summit, smooth descent via normal route.

A late start (12 AM) but it was no more than 2 hour easy going to the summit (yes, I cheated by taking the lift)

Beautifaul panoramas on surrounding mountains. Unfortanetly we were on the summit just at 2.30 pm, so that we couldn't catch the last cable car and had to hike all the way down to the valley.

GaffrRoute Climbed: The South Ridge with a descent of the West Ridge Date Climbed: The middle of August 2004  Sucess!
A very fine day out from the Hohsaas hut after walking up from Saas Grund. Some snow was encountered on the rocks higher up and a surprisingly awkward abseil into the final gap prior to the main summit! With the folks from Speyside.

mulidivareseRoute Climbed: Normal from Hohsaas Date Climbed: 8 August 2004  Sucess!


Nice climbing in a not nice day: clouds all around, foggy, snowy. Very wet.

We ( Valerio, Giorgio and Daniele) started from Hohsaas (not conviniant if you don't wont to climb Weissmiess the next day, but very good food). Than we go down till the morain and up to the glacier. The ridge start about 3400m, quite sloped but easy. If dry and without ice, maybe you don't need roop, but better have it.

Very easy, nice the passagges on plaques or stones. Only on the end be carful for the ice. In the late season, if possible, better to avoid the snow-field and climb on the right, where is rocky.

About 4 hours.

JScolesRoute Climbed: South West Ridge Date Climbed: July 14th 2004  Sucess!


Started out real late for this one 12pm from the Hohsaas but still managed to get on top before 16:00 and down to the Weissmies before 18:30 and to the valley by 21:00 for dinner.

Nice climb with a few interesting turns on the gendarms the only problem was my partner Filip and I had only a 20m rope for a 20m rap so it was little percarious as Filip had only just dislocatted his right shoulder and I was just about three weeks out of a cast from a broken tibia.

The hike down the normal PD route was a bitter remider of climbing in Canada, Lots of loose skree.
