Could you tell me more about your trip to Blinnenhorn (and probably mountains nearby as you mentioned ten days)?

And I read that the N side has some steep ice/snow, starting at AD-. Since I didn't go there, I can't say in what shape it was in 2013, but if I read about ice/snow faces routes rated AD-, I start thinking about a second ice tool.
. Just some really long, all the time WI3-WI4 sections as solo... well I'm not a professional + that bold. But some steep icy routes would be the optimal climbs for me. As the ice situation is bad as you mentioned and I've heard about the current (or few weeks ago) bad condition of icy routes this might be just a dream.2nd) ice walls e.g. Lenzspitze, which nowadays in summer conditions are no more recommendable.

You still have to cross the Gries Glacier very high up and there are some crevasses in that area as well, but that's less than 1 km instead of 12.
