Boring glacier trek from Britannia hytte towards Adlerpass. But luckily summit ridge offers some of the best views at the Alps.

A one day trip from Bern. Took the Metro-Alpin to the Hohlaub-Stollenloch and climbed the summit on skis. A pretty long ascent with beautiful views and a long ski descent.

A very long, unpleasant walk on the glacier. Fine weather but lots of wind on the ridge.

Together with Andi and Torkil on an autumnal day in July with fresh snow, ice-cold temperatures and incredible views reaching the northern Appennines and even Barre des Écrins.

Nice but long... the descent over the wet glacier in burning sun was not so pleasant. Skitouring this in spring seems a better idea.

Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2010


White-out on the approach, planted a tent somewhere on the glacier far enough from the Britannia hut. The summit day started off with clear skies and 20+ cm of fresh snow that had fallen during the night. Abnormally cold temperatures for this time of year! After reaching the Adler Pass, white-out set in. Most of the climbers aborted their summit push and turned around from the pass. Had to leave the skis on the pass and continue on foot along the NW ridge to the summit.

selinunte01An endless walk  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2001


on a swamp - like glacier - should be more fun with skies :-), but excellent day and excellent views, in the end it was worth the wet walk.

With Jck (Jacek). Very long route with great Allalinhorn and Rimpfischhorn faces views. Nasty melted glacier with tricky crevesses. Cold wind on the top. Good route for skis.

Climbed the route with Radek ( brade ). Very long. Tricky crevasses and strong wind. Made some mistakes in route-finding.

NikmanNormal Route (ski-mountaineering)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 2006


We came from Saas Fee via Britanniahütte and carried a lot of bivac-equipement (tent, stove, mattress, sleepingbag, food) up to the flat glacier at around 3400meters above sealevel. After a very cold night with temperatures down below -25 deg. celsius we reached the summit using ski.
We used ski to go down all the way to Saas Fee (about 2600 meters of altitude including the re-elevation before Britanniahütte)
Not very advisable mountain without acclimatisation, because it´s a very long way up there. Something I don´t have to do a second time, because the route is not very varied and rather boring.

We started from the Britannia hutte and walked as the first group accros the glacier through undisturbed snow, beautifull! When we were nearing Adler pas the snow got knee-deep, the wind statted to increase and cloubs came up. Eventually we turned around at approx 1 hour from the summit. We had quite some difficulty of finding our trail back since it had (almost) been blown away by the fierce winds, but we made it back to the hut. Perhaps we should have turned around earlier. Next year I might set up camp at the Allalin pas to climb the beautifull NNW (not WNW) ridge of Strahlhorn and also climb Rimpfischorn. Note that the glacial trip from the Britannia hutte is very long, tedious and boring. Only the last hour of climbing (from the Adler pass to summit) is interesting. Snow covering the glacier is quite thin in late summer, be carefull, the snow covering crevasses collapsed a couple of times.

A beautiful day. It is a very long walk.

The glacier was very soft on the way back forming a labyrinth of crevasses. Don't be there too late in the afternoon.

John ClimberToo long walk...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2006

John Climber

Of a party of three twoo reached the top under heavy conditions due to deep snow from before Adlerpass (about 40 cm). It was a window of good weather after three days of light snowing at that heights. From Brittaniahütte is, actually, a too long walk already, and it became even longer walking back the glacier at the late afternoon, when the snow of the lower part was too soft to hold our weight (aprox. 30 cm).

Luckily, weather was fine and there was no wind.
