In the hot and dry Swiss August of 2003; nor ice nor snow on the entire west ridge. Just easy rock climbing all the way to summit! Very unusual for a CH-4000!

Good weather, therefore many visitors on this

sunday morning!

ChandraRoute Climbed: normal route from Hohsaas Date Climbed: August 16th, 2003  Sucess!


With some fresh snow on the upper part of the ridge it was a very beautiful ascent but more than anything else a demanding descent, rocks flew like birds, so the helmet is a must! I have never known such a leg-killing descent, my knees were burning down at Hohsaas.

kletterwebbiRoute Climbed: N-ridge Date Climbed: Juli 1998  Sucess!


We have made the Fletschhorn-Lagginhorn traverse. This is a very good tour. The ascend and descent of Fletchhorn was quite easy, the ascent of the Lagginhorn via the N-ridge was a little more demanding.

Mathias Zehring

September 8th 1988 - west ridge (normal route)

we did the west ridge in full length which was not difficult but strenous

August 5th 1991 - north ridge

the north ridge is the traverse from the Fletschhorn because the connecting Fletschhornjoch is difficult to gain the direct way. There are only few parts with UIAA III at the ridge. It was the first time with crampons and the first 4000m-peak for my friend from eastern germany after the opening of the iron curtain.

July 29th 2004 - north ridge

Did the same again. There was less snow on the mountain as 1991 so some difficult parts could be avoided by passing shortly on the flanks. So it was not more difficult than UIAA II and we did not have to use the rope.
