Climbing from Arbenbivak over Arbengraat(Arbenridge) to the top, The wheater wasn't so good.
But the climb was great 3+. after standing on the top we abseild down a few pitches and walked to the wellenkuppe (very Steep).
And than we didn't seeing anything, fog and very strong wind. We could not find ower way down from wellekuppe to the Rothornhutte. But after using the GPS we arrived just before nightime( Snow, Rain, storm, fog and thunder)

JanGNE ridge from Wellenkuppe  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2007


This was a memorable climb for me. The Wellenkuppe/Obergabelhorn combination presented a very long but exhilarating mix of very exposed, somewhat dangerous snow ridges (with drops of over 800 metres to huge crevasses below) and challenging rock-climbing pitches (it was quite tough to find good footholds on the rocks while wearing crampons on my boots!).

It took me more than 11 hours to complete the round trip back to the Rothorn hut whereas my sons Christoph & Alexander did it in barely 10 hours. We had great weather and a fresh layer of snow (it had snowed two days previously) to provide a nice cushion on the steep downclimb from the summit.

Highly recommended mountain (for acclimatization and rock-climbing training purposes) for anyone envisioning to climb the Matterhorn or Weisshorn!

Rahel Maria LiuRoute Climbed: Northface Date Climbed: June/24/2000

Rahel Maria Liu

We started from Mountet, climbed the wonderful Northface and returned by the Coeur-ridge (1/3), abseiled down to the north couloir and climbed down the rest.

We did not climb the short very easy final passage from the end of the northface on the W-ridge to the summit (about 20 min.) because we wanted to save time. This was good in the end, since we got lost in the fog on our way back through the moraines (we did not have GPS). With the darkness, we reached the Mountet-hut nevertheless. But if we hadn't the maybe 45 saved min. left we might not have found the Mountet-hut anymore but might have made an unplanned bivouac in the moraines .... So sometimes lazy people are the winners ... ;o)

Been there twice now. Its a fantastic climb nothing like 450-500 VM of 45° snow and ice. The first time I did it we were back at the hut within 5.1/2hrs.

Next time I'll be taking my tele's with me.
