Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2013


Great scramble up an airy yet simple ridge. No need for the Via Ferrata on some of it. Good easy climb. climbed with Hamish

boriskrielenRoute climbed: NW-ridge (via ferrata III), solo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2013


Climbed the via ferrata on the NW-ridge. Nice route, although the cable doesn't always follow the most logical way. Unfortunately there are 2 parts with metal steps where it is sheer impossible to just climb the rocks and only use the cable for security. Nevertheless I used some of the metal steps but managed to never use the cable to pull myself up. Nice training!

telemarkdudeFoggy Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 1989


Stopped off to climb this on our way to the Britannia Hut for an ascent of Allalinhorn the next day. We started up the not so interesting east flank and were caught in dense fog on the upper part. We traversed over to a ridge and scrambled up rock to the summit.

Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2009


Climbed as an acclimatisation exercise before tackling 4000ers - the NW ridge + klettersteig is a delightful little scramble in its own right and the top of the Mittaghorn a superb view point.

Training climb. Arrived at the start of the climb without knowing there would be a via ferrata. Too bad this nice ridge is desecrated in this way...

Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2007


Nice little rest day activity between 4000m peaks. Via ferrata lanyards can be hired very cheaply from the intersport in Saas Fee or Saas Grund.

J FoxA inadvertent First Ascent?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2005

My wife and I had intended to take the walkers route to the summit but we didn't walk far enough along the Brittania hut trail to find the turnoff to the summit path. Instead we ended up doing a class 2 scramble up the north east flank. Not your traditional way up the moutain but quite an invigorating scramble. The summit has amazing views of the Mischable Wall.

This was our warm up route in our 1 week Saastal adventure. A bit cloudy and quite cool with some ice on the rocks towards the top.

Reached the summit in about 4 hours from Saas Fee, with a few pitches of nice climbing just below the summit. Signed the register on top and descended by the East Flank to the Plattjen cable car. The weather had been poor for several days in Zermatt, so we were very glad to be out climbing.
