Ivonawhole West ridge from the beggining
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2010


We climbed the whole West ridge from the back,not from Lagginhorn glacier like the normal route starts.Very crambly rocks but on the ridge good dry conditions.We had to stop 1-2 houres before the summit because of late houre.The weather forecast said about snowfalls and rain afternoon and the cloudes came faster,about 12.00.We were affraid wet II UIAA parts.
Anyway good fun because of dry rock after 2 weeks in the snow;)despite of this boring mountain
Climbed with Ania.

Leading an alpine club youth group (JDAV).
Coming from the Weissmies Hut, after traversing the Weissmies the day before.
We had some icy parts just below the summit, more demanding than the Weissmies.

after an unsucessful attempt from 2007 I soloed Lagginhorn in winter. Bivouac in tent on 3000m. Rather bad snow conditions and dangerous ice near the summit slowed my ascent and add some spice to it. Traverses were unpleasent. Lagginhorn is an interesting goal for winter ascents but only with hard snow.

Want to touch chaos? try Lagginhorn - most illogical 4000m pile of stone I've ever seen. Climbed with Jck (Jacek) but 200 m below summit I just fall asleep.

Lots of snow on the normal route. We had to make a track together with another group. An easy climb, but enjoyable.

Me, Joker VK and another colleague reached the top in 6 hours from the Weissmieshutte with hard conditions over the (North)West ridge. Avalanche risk on the faces forced us to follow this line, full with deep snow. Snowshoes were useful till the top. Descending with snowshoes was a little bit tricky. We made use of a half-day opening in the weather. A snow-fall catched ud while descending over the same route. 5 hours to descend.

Solo-climb on normal route. I drove by car to Kreuzboden ;-) and stayed in the winter-room of Weissmies-hut. Started at 6 a.m. The glacier was heavily cracking many times. A little bit scary. Much snow on the last 350 meters. Little bit tricky, but o.k.

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2007


Climbing with Radek (brade).
Did it in one day- Unneri Brende- Tewald- Kreuzboden- Weissmies Hut- Lagginhorn and back, without any cable cars. Very exhausting. Despite some snow near the summit crampons and ice axe was unnecessary.
Words to describe the route: boring, pointless, irrational, illogical... Just a pile of stones, quite long scrambling.
You have to choose between Lagginhorn and Weissmies? Definitely the second one.

Technically not hard and safe to go solo (what I did). The last 200 meters to the summit had some blank ice, so it needed the use of crampons.

We first followed the trail towards Fletschhorn and took a right on the actual start of the Lagginhorn ridge. I was happy that the conditions were excellent, especially the firn on the upper part pleased me, 'cause of the variation it brings to this mountain.

Quite exceptional snow conditions this year I understand. Made it from Weissmieshütte in 6h40m. Nice and easy route with enjoyable climbing.

Went up there on my own June 30th. This was an ice and snow climb from about 3500. Not to be underestimated as a "hike" during summer. Maybe at end of summer..or some years with less than normal snow. Nice and quite exposed summit. Talked to some British climbers who also felt it WAS harder than they had imagined..

My first "4000"... Got to the top but seen nothing at all... fog/clouds and a little of snow, surely with a different weather it would have been better...
