I have climbed this peak twice now, both times successfully but under vastly differing conditions. In 2002 it was mostly a snow climb and descent. In 2003 there was much more rock exposed around the SSE ridge and some nasty crevasses and seracs to turn on the descent across the Hohsaas Glacier. Attached a couple of photos to show crevasses etc.

Claude MauguierRoute Climbed: south ridge Date Climbed: aug 1987  Sucess!
Spent a night in Almageller Hütte. Then up to Zwischbergen Pass with almost fine weather, until I started for the final snow ridge...I got to the top in a thick mist, and heard a kind of ghost emerging from it, say "Berg Heil..." while we shook hands. The way back was the same, but a thick cover of clouds would remain for the rest of the day....

Together with my brother. After a rainy start it became nice weather. Fantastic view. Quite clouded and cold when we returned.

GaffrRoute Climbed: The Normal route from the Hohsaas hut. Date Climbed: Middle of August 2002.  Sucess!
On a morning after fresh snow and not very much visibility we had an interesting ascent to the summit which has no cairn, cross or madonna! I really enjoyed this mountain. Descent by the same route. With Don from Inverness.

Nice route from the Almageller hut via Zwischenbergen-pass and the rocky S-ridge to the summit. Managed to time the worst weather! Snow and icy winds up on the ridge. Visibility: zero.

Just as my first visit in 2002 but worse!

Maybe a third time?

pdouRoute Climbed: Triftgrat (SW-ridge) from Almageller hut Date Climbed: August 15 2004  Sucess!
Being mostly begginers, it took us quite long to do this slightly more difficult route, but finally we were happy to choose it - it was more interesting and we were alone all the time. Weather and visibility were excellent.

Our first 4000 experience. Started at 8.00 a.m. from Hohsaas with my brother and a local guide under a clear sky. In 2,5 hours to the summit. Great view on a.o. Bernina Gruppe. Back at Hohsaas by 12.15. Used some drinks and soup before further descending via Weissmies lodge to Kreuzboden. Great experience!

We took the cable car to Kreuzboden (2400 m). From Kreuzboden we walked towards the Triftglacier. Crossed the lower part of the glacier up to the Hohsaas hut at 3000m.

Next morning we started to climb at 5.30 am. Clear sky, but not very cold. Great views at the summit (Monte Rosa, Mischabel Group). Nice climb.

Started in the morning in complete fog but just before we reached the zwischenbergenpass the clouds disappeared and we had a great view to monte rose, alphubel dom (photo). Nice climb on easy rock's to reach over a small crest to the summit, down to hohsaas and saas grund.

2003: Nice climb in rather bad conditions, but not that difficult and with an amazing sunrise. Great beginning of our vacation.

2006: Made an attempt on the North Ridge. Reached the Lagginjoch around 6 o'clock and then decided to turn back because weather didn't look nice at all and, I must admit, the view on the ridge up there is rather frightening...

2009: After 3 years I was back for a second attempt on the North Ridge. The weather was good and I was mentally ready for the climb. Without any problems we reached the summit after 6 hours of climbing on a splendid ridge. Not willing to search our way between the hordes of people and the crevasses on the NW Flank, we descended easily and alone via the SSE Ridge to the Almagellerhütte.

August 6th 1991 - normal route from Weissmies hut:

The glacier had quite good conditions. It was a beautiful day, so calm that we could watch someone start with his parachute from the summit. But the day ended sadly as we had to watch a climber fall to death from Weisskugel north ridge.



July 28th 2004

traverse from Almageler hut to Weissmies hut.

Beautiful day. From Zwischenbergen pass we stayed on the rocky ridge though following the snow fields on the east side might be shorter. Climbing was amusing and not difficult. Descent on the glacier to Hohsass had still good conditions.

ProbemeisterRoute Climbed: Traverse NW flank and SSE ridge to Almageller hut Date Climbed: July 2003  Sucess!
This was my friend's first time on snow and first big peak. The traverse is an excellent general mountaineering route and I fully recommend it, it has a bit of everything, glacier, ice, crevasses, a narrow snow arete, a rock ridge and a cake at the almageller hut.
