Beautiful september weather convinced us to try another mountain in Switserland. We chose Rimfischhorn from Flue. Great hutt with delicious food, best ever eaten at a mountain hutt!. The climb was beautiful but long.

JanGLong climb from Fluealp  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2012

Started at 3AM from the excellent Fluealp hut (highly recommended for its excellent food and great lodging). After 2 hours of hiking to Pfulwe over well-marked paths and large boulders, we began the VERY LONG glacier climb to the final couloir. Very windy at the upper glacier reaches, but after 6 hours' total climb, we made it to the summit. Spectacular views in all directions. Another 5 hours descent to Fluealp awaited us. This peak is a great endurance practice climb for the Matterhorn or other loftier peaks.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2011

boriskrielen

Started in the valley at Täschalp, at 2200 meter. Long way trough the valley, up the ridge, across the W-Kuppe, onto the S-foresummit and finally the main summit. Also climbed the S-shoulder summit. Then all the way down to Täschalp again. 2000 meter up and down in 15 hours, mostly due to extremely soft hipdeep snow on the glacier. Still, great tour!

Nice and moderate solo climb from the Fluhalp hut (Zermatt). Ice and hard névé in the upper gullies, so had to stay on the ridge. A little bit more difficult (III-) than the usual crux (exposed slab, II), but solid rock.
Same way back to the Fluhalp hut for cake & coffee and down to Zermatt.

il.rocciatoreRoute Climbed: Standard Route from Britannia Date Climbed: august 2010  Sucess!

il.rocciatore

Our initial idea was to climb the North Ridge. However, when we arrived at the Allalinpas, the weather looked very unstable and we opted for the safer standard route instead, which allows easier retreat in case of bad weather. You don't allways get what you want in the mountains and sometimes you have to be happy with a smaller price...

From the Rimpfischsattel, we stayed too long in the snow couloir, eventually leading to a col below the foresummit. After an easy traverse into the East Face and about 60m rather delicat climbing on vertical but loose rock we made it to the summit. Loooooooong way back to the camp site in Saas Grund.

Exhausting, long route. Quite a lot of snow. Amazed by the sunrise. Extremely agressive sun - felt a bit sick during the descent due to dehydration. Didn't go over the foresummit but traversed further in the wall and then steeply up to the summit. Great Stralhorn views. Annoyed by the slush during the descent. Fantastic bivouacplatz aprox. 20min from Taschhut. Met only two climbers in the early morning going to Alphubel then nobody was there!! 5 sunny days in a row without a single rain.

Approached via the Fluealp and bivouaced nearby the Pfulwe pass. The climb was a 17-hour epic which started by taking a wrong and pretty dangerous line up and abseiling down using precarious anchors, then climbing up again through the correct line, and finally descending the whole way back to the Pfulwe pass by constantly missing the right exits one has to take on the way. With all these detours I reached the bivouac site at about 10 p.m., and as if that was not enough, I got a shower of wet hail just at the moment when I was taking off my boots and was ready to crawl into my bivvy bag. And there's no way to close the bag quickly...

Great day though!

I was 19 when I climbed Rimpfischhorn. It was snowy and foggy and I suffered from altitude sickness on the way back. My friend forgot his piolet when he abseiled down the wall below the presummit. I offered to climb back up to get it. It was hell: steep, icy cliffs, a snowstorm, and sickness.

Pechorin

I had suffered a sprained ankle a few days earlier on the Zinalrothorn, but my foot held up ok. We had beautiful weather and lots of fresh snow (no tracks). The correct route is easy to see from the saddle-point, but we lost track later on and ascended too far straight up... got back on the route through a dicey traverse on steep ground without good holds.
I climbed with my twin brother. We didn't meet or see anyone else on the mountain.

Lots of fresh snow. Good weather on the way up. On the summit thunder started and snow came down for the next 12 hours. No other people on the mountain.

Very long ascent but final route is 100% worth it. Climbing it is a real fun! Climbed with Jck (Jacek) and Lukasz.

Any danger?
2 guides with 7 problematic clients on one rope.

Very long route.
After spending three days in tents over the Tahschhutte waiting for good weather I climbed this route with Radek ( brade ) and Lukasz. Interesting and enjoyable climb in quite good snow conditions.
Before descending I climbed also the the West Summit (P 4009).
