Traversed the Nadelgrat from the Mischabelhütte to the Galenjoch. Extremely long tour!

Passage over the Stecknadelhorn is quite straightforward, it looks more exposed than it is and passes quickly. Traverse underneath the summit of Nadelhorn and the gendarm on the NW ridge over an icy slope, belaying with ice srews necessary.

I climbed the Nadelgrat solo, from the Mischabelhut via Nadelhorn, Stecknadelhorn, Hoberghorn, Dürrenhorn, Riedglacier, Windjoch, back to the Mischabelhut. Day started out extremely windy and many climbed turned back to the hut without summitting Nadelhorn. Later the wind dropped and it was a great clear climbing day. Descending from the Dürrenjoch was quite dangerous as stones were falling all the time. The glacier was still surprisingly in good condition. Climbing back up to the Windjoch was killing though. Took me 15 hours for the roundtrip.

We climbed the Nadelgrat from the Bordier hut starting at the Galenjoch and traversing Dirruhorn, Hobärghorn & Stecknadelhorn. Galenjoch to Dirruhorn took half of the time of the whole ridge - much snow, no tracks. Decided to cross the Nadelhorn north face and descend without the summit due to the time. Most of the rock fragile, but not that difficult. Though an interesting climb in a spectacular ambiance, following this nice pearl necklet. In the afternoon the Ried glacier already was one single swampy minefield.

Climbed by traversing a steep slope below the summit of Nadelhorn. Lots of fresh snow made the traverse quite slow and tricky (no spur).

We decided not to do the full Nadelgrat traverse. So we only climbed the Stecknadelhorn and the Nadelhorn. Good snow conditions. Long ascent from the Bordierhut.

Tagged this peak after doing Nadelhorn. In hindsight, we could have avoided summit traffic on Nadelhorn by doing this one first. An enjoyable traverse and an easy scramble. Just concentrate well on the traverse.

We had planned a traverse of Nadelgrat ridge from Mischabel hut via Nadelhorn and Stecknadelhorn to Dom hut. Weather wasn't 100% save but everything worked well at the beginning, with the normal route to Nadelhorn. After a short descent we branched off for Stecknadelhorn. When we had gained the firn ridge we witnessed two climbers falling down from the W-ridge of Stecknadelhorn. Two South Tyrolean climbers reched them quickly and phoned for helicopter rescue. In the meantime we had gained the summit but could not proceed because we could have caused stonefalls on victims and helpers. The rescue took some time and weather seemed to change. We were still shocked and decided to turn around. Back at Mischabel hut we learned that one of the climbers had died. Half a year later at a club conference I got to know that I had known him.

On the 22nd, I climbed together with my friends from Mischabelhut via Nadelhorn to Stecknadelhorn and returned to Mischabelhut.



The next day (23rd), I climbed it solo. I climbed Hohberghorn Northface and Nadel-Ridge via Stecknadelhorn and Nadelhorn back to Mischabelhut.

I came from Hohberghorn solo and was afraid how difficukt the ridge seemed to be. It wasn't at all. Nice climbing and it took only 1 hour from Hohberghorn to Windjoch.
