...climbed with rgg and my son Keith, via Allalin Glacier and west ridge - from Britannia Hut. Agreed it was a slog, but hardly boring, with very threatening crevasse fields on the glacier. The beautiful summit ridge and summit made up for all the hard work.
A point about the route: due to the condition of the Allalin glacier it is not recommended to make the lowest crossing to reach it in summer. As advised in hut we traversed the Hohlaubglacier about 100m higher up and crossed the rocky spur of the lower Houlaubgrat from Allalinhorn - and reached the Allalin Glacier about 1-2km further up. What with crossing this spur both on way up and down - and then the final pull back up to the Brittania Hut, this makes for a total of 1500m ascent for the day, as determined by rgg.
The lower crossing to the Allalin Glacier is only recommended as a ski route in winter, when crevasses and boulders covered up by snow.
Suggest check the route carefully with hut staff - we were aware of some who went astray and added a few hours to an already long day.

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.

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

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.

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.
