Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2013

boriskrielen

I started at my tent in Saas Grund (1590m) at 7am. Speedwalked to Saas Almagell and up to Berghaus Almagelleralp where I had 2 cups of coffee to fight the cold and wake up. Then continued to the Almageller hut, Zwischbergenpass and up the S-ridge. Great views all the way to the Lago Maggiore. Descended the normal highway to Hohsaas. Took the cablecar down. Back at my tent at 5pm.

Summited via the south ridge from the Almageller Hut. Lots of snow on the southeast face and mixed scrambling on the south ridge. Took off crampons for the ridge and put them back on for the summit. Great weather and great snow conditions.

We climbed the mountain from the hut in little over 4 hours, and back down in about two and a half hours. We had poor visibility, and due to recent snowfall the track vanished little above the glacier. Our guide was familiar enough with the mountain to find the route anyway.

Nice climb from Almagellar Huette to Hohsaas. Especially the scrambling up allong the ridge is beautiful. Down to Hohsaas its a nice glacier with some nice views into crevasses.

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2012

Easy and not too long morning snow climb, amidst spectacular seracs and crevasses (in the lower portions of the route). Climbed in the company of my son Alexander and Turbo, our Zermatt guide.

Turbo's mountain experiences made all the difference for us when, unexpectedly, huge blocs of ice broke off from cornices 500 metres high above us and started an ice avalanche which plummeted down the main chute. Turbo had guided us preventively on a side path so as to avoid any potential icefall. Thus, we only had to duck a few of the deadly ice blocks which came our way at high speeds. Fortunately nobody else on the trail was hit by the ice blocks which rolled down at 6:30 AM (one of the ice blocks was as big as a car). We were back from the summit at 11AM (at the Hohsaas hut) .

We did the route in perfect weather. No wind at all! There was no snow on the rocky SSE ridge. It's an amazing route.
