VinnyRoute Climbed: Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: March 2001  Sucess!


Lowest sweat factor in the Alpen 4000'ers but I read it kills more people than any other swiss mountain except the Matterhorn. ?

It was a great snowplod of 2 hours from the (friggin cold) hut with Stefan. We returned to find our ski partners tossing their cookies after the highest train ride I've ever done.

Awesome views (but the Eiger is less impressive from that angle), huge Cornices!

mountainmanjohnRoute Climbed: south west ridge Date Climbed: june 2000  Sucess!


We were the only ones staying in the hut for the night. The hut was very warm.

We left at about six in the morning and took our time in a bright fresh morning, only seeing one other pair before we got back down to the glacier. The route SW Ridge is great, a scramble, then a few very fine snow ridges to the top. Watch out for cornices. We roped up for the top half but some don't. The summit views are great. A long way down to green patures on the north side, Jungrfrau to the west, Eiger to the east and the glaciers to the south.

John Sickel, Mark Rapley, Nigel Hoad.......our first 4000M Mountain.

dirkclaessenRoute Climbed: South-east ridge in winter Date Climbed: December 1986  Sucess!
My first winter climb. Did it solo. I left Grindelwald in the morning. Train to Jungfraujoch. Returned the same day. From Jungfraujoch on, I didn't see a soul the whole day. Just can't describe what feelings it give to climb all alone in winter with nothing else around but high mountains. Superb, nice conditions.
