icypeakNormal Route from Hohsaas  Sucess!

icypeak

Left the hut at 5:15 in the morning and we were the second on the summit. The crowds were about half hour behind us. Get an early start and you have the mountain to yourself. Very luxurious hut compared to others I've been in. Super climb.

Beautiful and easy climb in a beautiful surrounding. Absolutely recommendable! And there's no glacier with crevasses on this way, a nice possiblity for more experienced climber to bring some less experienced along. Some pics at www.climbingtours.net

Surprisingly enjoyable climb! Watched the moon set over Rimpfischhorn on the way up, brilliant views from the ridge and the summit, really worthwhile. Started extra early so we could bag Lagginhorn the same (long) day. I think gert (see below) was the only person up before us.

I started late in the evening at Saas Almagell, bivouaced a few hours just above the tree line and then continued to the top.
Beautiful sunrise at the Zwischenbergen pass! Nice climb! The summit was very cold and windy. Descended the same way.

Climbed the Weissmies starting from the Almagellerhütte and descending to Weissmieshütte. No visibility on the way up due to snow and wind so did not propably take the most convenient way up and climbed on the rocks instead. Due to same reasons there was no trail down the normal route which cost me a lot of time navigating solo through crevasses of the steeper slopes.
A beautiful mountain when I got to view it from the Lagginhorn the next day!

We used the cable car to middle station of Kreuzboden and sleep in a tent above Weissmies hut.In the morning we started the ascent to the summit by normal way over Hohsaas hut.Nice ascent on the glacier,it was very good weather,high temperature.Unfortunately on the summit,there wasn't so good view,but it could be worse.Descent was as good as ascent.Very nice two days.

A long snow and ice route with a lot of crevasses starts at the Hohen Saas hut. Plenty of people could be seen out in a nice Sunday sun, (August 25, 1991).

This was my first peak the day after flying over from America. Other than that, it was a great day and hike.

This was a cracking route and part of our acclimatising for the Matterhorn later in the week.



Two other teams on the route, stunning alpine setting. Met the masses coming up from Hohass on the the long glacier route from the north. The SSE ridge is far more enjoyable and interesteing , although no more technically difficult that the N.



Had snow, ice and rock - so perfect day out for me.

It was a cloudy day and on the summit there was no view! The SSE-rigde is very nice! The normal route isn't as nice as the SSE-rigde. In seven hours we where at the Weismieshutte!

It was very fine weather. We saw at Zwischenbergpass a beautiful sunset. After the glacier we turned off, 280m before the summit. I think we had not enough aclimatisation. But we come back!!!

Nice climbing in a windy day.

We (Valerio, Paolo and Sabrina) reached the top in a very short while.



Easy but careful for the crevasses

An interesting easy glaciar excursion... my first big glaciar crossing in the summer time. (seems about the same as in winter, on skis, except more crevass fall danger) A complete circus. I counted 25 people before us on the summit and more than 50 after... everybody started at exactly the same time so it meant a constant line of leap-frogging all the way up. Not recommended, at least on a weekend. Weekday or offseason - something to avoid the crowds - and would be a great easy peak.
