Strahlhorn normal route Comments
[ Post a Comment ]
|This route (actually the entire mountain) is so much more enjoyable by Skis in the touring season. Almost the same route (only difference: don't go over the rib between the Alallin and Hohlaubglacier, rather go around it on lower end and directly on Alallinglacier), with a much faster descent this long distance back down the glacier (30 min from top to bottom of the counter ascent to hut).|

|This is a fine page Mark. Great work!|
I especially like the photos with Route beta. It makes it very clear how to go up there.

|Thanks a lot Lodewijk!|
I think it is one of the fun parts of putting a descriptive page together, editing photos etc. And with this route, having stumbled around in the dark, not entirely sure where to go and then met a pair who went the wrong way - it made me want to make it very clear... some may feel it is over-kill, detracting from the pioneering spirit - but in my view the pioneering spirit can go to the devil in crevasse and boulder fields especially before dawn!
Good luck with your plans for 2015 - have you still got the Monte Rosa summits on your wish-list?
best wishes, Mark

|Hi Mark, well, it is ether the Monta Rosa summits or the Bernese Alps. Climbing mountains like Jungfrau, Monch and Finsteraarhorn will be just awesome. So we're still thinking about it :-) Did you make your plans for 2015 yet? Cheers, Lodewijk|
