We have exceeded the Weissmies 4017m: From the south to the west. South ridge up, west flank down. That is worth much.

Start in the Almageller Hut 2894m. On a footpath and path spoors, over boulders and debris to the historic mountain pass ‘Zwischenbergpass 3268m’. Now one goes to the north to the Rottal-glacier, where the south ridge begins. Over the south ridge highly to the Point 3972m, climbing in the 2 degree. From the point 3972m the final comes, over a last and somewhat exposed ridge on the summit of Weissmies 4017m.

We descended over the normal route: the west ridge/west flank. This route is technically not with difficulty, BUT there are enormous and deep crevasses. The Trift-glacier it „tore strongly apart“ - rope up.

Thus, Weissmies is rather a simple 4000er. But the glacier is dangerous. In principle each 4000er has its malice and dangers. Rope up is important.
With questions or unclarity, I help you gladly.

but a bit poor as trip report - it is more like a route description (and as such it holds quite good infos).
I also would appreciate more detailed information in the picture captions.
