Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2011


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.

JanGNormal route from Hohsaas  Sucess!
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.

Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2011


Started from Almagaller hut in perfect weather, with plans to return by the same ridge because my family was in the Almagaller hut. Was nice and easy until the rocky part where we felt we should have carried some slings for a safer descent, so turned back around 3800m.

Traverse from the Almageller hut to the Hohsaas cablecar. Nice weather and nice climbing. Only the Trift glacier was a maze of crevasses.

A superb day out, climbing solo from the Almageller hut - on a date that sticks in the mind (9/9/09!).

Overnighted at Almageller Hut. Zwishenbergpass up South Southeast Ridge. I would call it fourth class. Simul-climbed three man rope. Descent down Trift glacier. Maze of crevasses.

Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2010


We started from Hochsaas cable car.The first one goes very late at 8 am,so we had to hurry before hot and sunny day.
We were climbing 3,5 houres.While descending we were using ice screws on the upper part of the route because of quite steep ice.Wonderful cravesses!

Quickly. Shortly. Very nice! I thought it would've been a bit more demanding, however it was a nice starting point to go further this season. Summitted on Igi's birth day in perfect weather and snow conditions.
Climbed with Igi, brade and Matti.

Went light and fast, early cable car up, doned crampons and axes once on the glacier, legged it up and down in no time at all. Smash and grab raid!
