JuhoKNadelgrat traverse, solo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013

JuhoK

Started from Mischabel hytte at 01:45. I quickly reached the base of the ascent couloir. Climbed the couloir all to way up to the Dirrujoch and visited the Dirruhorn. Continued the traverse over the Hohbärghorn and Stecknadelhorn. The ridge towards Stecknadelhorn was loose as hell. Weather was perfect so climbed Nadelhorn also. Returned to the hut in a very good time. Whole climb took only 7,5 hours. Crazy!

boriskrielenRoute climbed: Nadelgrat, 4 peaks, solo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2011

boriskrielen

I climbed the route solo, from the Mischabelhut via Nadelhorn, Stecknadelhorn, Hoberghorn, Dürrenhorn, Riedglacier, Windjoch, back to the Mischabelhut. Day started out extremely windy and many climbed turned back to the hut without summitting Nadelhorn. Later the wind dropped and it was a great clear climbing day. Descending from the Dürrenjoch was quite dangerous as stones were falling all the time. The glacier was still surprisingly in good condition. Climbing back up to the Windjoch was killing though. Took me 15 hours for the roundtrip.

We climbed the Nadelgrat from the Bordier hut starting at the Galenjoch and traversing Dirruhorn, Hobärghorn & Stecknadelhorn. Galenjoch to Dirruhorn took half of the time of the whole ridge - much snow, no tracks. Decided to cross the Nadelhorn north face and descend without the summit due to the time.
Most of the rock fragile, but not that difficult. Though an interesting climb in a spectacular ambiance, following this nice pearl necklet.

philoVariant number 1 (Hohberghorn, Stecknadelhor, Nadelhor)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2009

We did 1 variant of this route from tents put above Bordierhutte. Beautiful traverse!
There wasn't as much snow as on the photos. Dirrujoh wasn't all coverd with ice. We had difficulties with finding that climbing route on the right side of the couloir and that's why we had to resign from climbing Dirruhorn (time was ticking, we had to go down to Gasenried the same day).
I surely recommend this traverse!

mulidivareseNadelgrat. durrenhorn to Nadelhorn  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2008

Weather was perfect: no wind, warm. there was enaugh snow in July even if the coloir to the durrenjock was a bit too much dry. Anyway once left the bordierhutte at 3, we reached the footstep of the coloir around 5:30 and then the top of durrenhorn at 7:30. It tokes a long while not the icy part of the coloir, but the second half on the rocks (actually you have to leave the colouir around at half for the loosy rocks on the left: very dengerouse there). Then it was just an easy, spectacular ride till Nadelhorn reached at 11 Am.
great day!

Samuli MansikkaNadelgrat Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2006

Started from the Mischabel Hut where I also ended my solo traverse. First climbed over the Windjoch and headed towards the 45 degree couloir which took me to the saddle between Dirruhorn and Chli-Dirruhorn (http://www.summitpost.org/image/141891/155011/not-sure-where-i-got-this.html). Visited the Chli-Dirruhorn and returned to the saddle and climbed Dirruhorn, Hohberghorn, Stecknadelhorn and Nadelhorn. 11 hours from the Mischabel Hut to the Nadelhorn.

One of the most elegant longer traverses I've ever done. The quality of the rock varied from awful to excellent. Be sure to get on the route only in very good weather. The route is very long and exposed so the commitment level is relatively high.

Nice rock climbing. Don't go to early in spring. Possibility of snow on the ridge. Climbed it from Lenzspitze to Nadelhorn, so not the entire ridge.

Climbe it twice. The first time on the normal route from the Windjoch. One year later as part of the traverse Lenzspitze (NE face)-Nadelhorn. Both times were very amusing.
