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.

Long but beautiful way up to Adlerpass, from there short climb to summit. We (Gust, Stef, Tim and Bjorn) were alone on the summit and had a white-out, so no view and a scary descent.

Very long way on the glacer but in wonderful landscape.



We reached the top (Valerio, Daniele, Jolanda, Luigi, Sabrina, Paolo) in about four hours of walking on the long long glcaer.

I'm walking... and I'm still walking...

Very windy on summit ridge, but perfect views to Matterhorn / Weisshorn / Lyskamm / Monte Rosa... :-)

Adlerpass a bit dicy, but almost completely possible on skis. Easy snow walk from the pass to the summit. Some crevass danger, not recommended alone. Of course my partner was too pooped to go on, so I completed it alone. Some minor, easy scrambling on the somewhat exposed summit ridge. Arrived very late, quickly did a U-turn after one picture. Wrong turn on the way to the Britannia Hut cost me what little daylight was left, arrived at 7:30 PM in the middle of dinner, in near complete darkness. Not a perfect ascent, but done.

The walk from Britannia hut to Fluchtpass was easy, then the route got steeper and clouds covered us. As beginners, we needed 4.5 hours from Fluchtpass to the summit. This route is much more interesting than the normal "highway", but it requires some experience.

It was a nice walk (about 10 km) and a perfect view. In the midday very very hot. But the descent on Snowboard was fabulous!!!!!!

What can I say? A rather long trip on snow and ice, which isn't that exciting. But anyway, it always gives a great feeling climbing a fourthousand meter summit, and when somebody would ask me to climb Strahlhorn again, I would not hesitate. Although I would consider a different approach.

Nevertheless, climbing is always fun!

we found good conditions and were able to go with ski until 20 m beneath the summit. The Allalin glacier has arctic dimensions so we felt being so small on this long and flat walk to th Adlerpass. No good sight but warm and no wind on the summit. This was my first 4000 m-peak climbed with ski and my 200th mountain climbed higher than 3000 m.

The weather wasn't really cooperative (there had been about 3 to 4cm of fresh powder from just beneath the Adlerpass the night before). So we were in a hurry. But nevertheless, it was a great feeling to stand on top, in the middle of all those giants. We could see them all, despite the clouds: Monte Rosa, Lyskam,Castor,Polux,... All the way to Zinalrothorn, and then those that are a bit closer: Rimpfisch, Allalin, Mischabel. And all with sort of a strange yellow glow on them, because of the bad weather that was preparing for the afternoon. But we were there at about 9 AM, so no problems on the way back! And it's true: it is a very long trip!

A rather boring climb with a looong walk over the glacier. Would have been an enjoyable ski tour in the spring.

Britannia hut instead was very comfortable place to stay at!

Did it together with Martin (see next entry) and two other friends. Seldom climded route with a nice ice face in the beginning. Two things I remember clearly: Poor visibility on the ridge and exhausting track breaking.

Vinny

A stunning mountain in a great setting.



Steve, Rolf, Thomas and I enjoyed the ski traverse from Monte Rosa hut toward Britannia. a Great traverse.



The west face offers an objectively safe 300m 40-50 degree snow slope. Very nice! Busy in good weather!



Brittania hut looks awesome, Monte Rosa hut is so- so, but in a nice setting.
