Nice and exposed summit part of the route, similar to Rimpfischhorn but shorter. Interesting climb.

|Climbed with Radek (brade). |
Not what we planned...
Reached the Windjoch early in the morning and tried to traverse to the bottom of Hohberghorn's North Face- after reaching the huge seracs decided to get back because of unstable, fresh snow.
After summiting Nadelhorn tried to get to Stecknadelhorn- also had to get back because of snow conditions.
Finally, while descending, we bagged Ulrichshorn...
Nice route, fine climb near the summit, strong wind, not very good snow conditions even on the ridge.

|Good conditions, but very windy. If you also count on nice mountainhuts, besides of the pure climb, I would recommend to start from Bordierhut. The hutkeeper at Mischabel is not the friendliest one and from my experience, Bordierhut is much nicer.|

|It was a very long ascent with weight in the haversack to use the winter hut of Mischabel. The effort to reach the hut made the attack to the summit very long but the line of NE ridge was evident. We needed the use of some pitons of ice in some meters of the ridge and we used the rope in the final rocky ridge (it has a little of ice and snow on the rock). It's important to climb the final rocky ridge in left side (right is harder)|
Beautiful landscape! It was one of the climbs most beautiful that I remember in all my visit to the Alps.

|We were the first on the ridge in fresh snow that overcast morning, views were stunning when the clouds opened up. Also tagged Stecknadelhorn and Ulrichshorn. Very worthwhile!|

|Great fun after a lot of fresh snow, breaking trail all the way. Solo.|

|Was lucky to catch one of the few beautiful days during August '06. Although alot of fresh snow on the NE-ridge slowed down the climb considerably. A great day - a great mountain!|

|Traverse from Lenzspitze! It took us to long. The first hours much of loose rocks, on the gendarms better rock! The last part was very nice climbing.|

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 1997
|Nadelhorn is one of the beautiful peaks in the Mischabel group (Mistgabel = Dung fork). From Saas-Fee it is a good 1500 meter to the Mischabel hut. Starting early we had a classic alpine ascent over the Hobalm glacier and futher from Windjoch to the summit along the long snow ridge, (August 5, 1997)|

|What a fantastic mountain! My first 4,000m peak and gaining the hut from Saas Fee was a great day out in itself! We stuck to the ridge crest all the way because of the avalanche risk on the west side. And the windjoch didn't live up to its name suprisingly!|

|It was a beautiful climb with hard winds. The day before on 8 august there where extreme hard winds.......(people in the north face on the lenzspitze had climbed it back on 8 august because the traverse was to dangerous with those winds). There where many people on their way to the summit. Also very slowly Italian...you couln't pass theme on the narrow rockrigde! After a long long walk we where back in Saas Fee!|
bbirth! that was on 9 august?? we saw you going to the summit! We talked the evening before? Is that correct. [email protected] I have pictures from you in the lenzspitze face!

The Mischabehutte is very confortable, but so far away.....
