CissaSwiss route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 16, 2015


Climbed the Swiss route but exited to the right on serious mixed terrain due to the impossibility of taking the left snow ramp, which is original of the route, because of avalanches. Bivouaced in the summit and descend the colour on the left the following day.

Great weather and enjoyable route but bus loads of people. Descent was rather loose and tedious due to little snowcover.

A warm summer, the snowy part to reach the ridge was not in perfect condition. Be careful on the descent not to get lost :-)

mpyhajarRoute Climbed: NE Date Climbed: February -99  Sucess!


I went to ski the NE face with Ari Känsäkoski. We started climbing around 10 am. and it took around 3 hours to get to the summit. After the first 500 meters the route becomes a bit more steeper and interesting. The final 100 meters are the steepest on that route. It was quite cold and windy on the summit, so we just had a small break and started skiing back to the glacier. Snow condiction was not fabulous, but the route was very nice to ski. It is quite long and interesting offpiste. The view over there is just is spectacular. Just to mention that for telemarkers the first 100 meters from the summit are quite interesting :)

kullabergRoute Climbed: swiss route Date Climbed: march 88  Sucess!


long day hacking away on hard ice. storm near the top forced us to bivvy on the summit. next morning the descent gully was loaded and it still snowed hard so we traversed east to, what's it called? col de triolet? and had an alright rappel session down the sheltered rock band on the side. then down to ref. argentiere.

Nice and long (750 m) snow/ice route, not too steep (max. 50°). We had fairly good snow conditions, no ice.
