nicowuytsRoute Climbed: SSE-ridge ascent, descending NW-route Date Climbed: August 12 2003  Sucess!

Great weather, nice route, what could you want more? Plus a "playground" in the mid-section of the NW-face: for a breef moment we could really feel like the guys in the Khumbu. But it has to be said: this is not normal!! When are people going to realize we are really ruining our planet with our industries etc. (Start rating Kyoto-protocol, ALL OF U!)

We started from the Almagellerhut and climbed solo over the SSE-ridge and went down over the NW-flank of the mountain. It was great to start our vacation with in Wallis this year. Nice views over the Monta rosa area !

Thanks to the abnormal glacierconditions it was a very exciting ascent. We had to cross ladders, boards and everything else you can imagine on a glacier, this year Weissmies was a little Kumbu. Made it in one day, which was not such a good idea, going down with this temperature and those countless crevasses was really dangerous!

VinnyRoute Climbed: West Route Date Climbed: June 2001

Vinny

The route snakes its way through some impressive crevasses, but it took our group too long.



It was a fun day out from the Weissmies hut with Beni, Geraldine and Robin, but we were too late in getting to the final shrund at 3800m. It was also impressively wide, nobody had passed up it but a couple had jumped over it from above. I was impressed.



The Jagihorn offers a fun Kletterstieg reachable from the hut in one hour. Almost like the Dolomites!



Oh well.

PeterCorneliusSpaethRoute Climbed: West Ridge ? Date Climbed: July 1974

PeterCorneliusSpaeth

We did sleep outside the Weissmies hut - these Swiss huts were too expensive for us. I think it was the next ridge to the north ridge what we used. We ran into a blizzard, I was very young and unexperienced^, so insisted to continue. The others were older but even more stupid. We did not reach summit, nearly failed to find the normal route down, and finally arrived at our tent in Saas Grund at midnight, wet to the bone. Did sleep the whole next day. I cannot recommend the route ... ;-)

Peter.

Update: Added the standard route on August 2th, 2008. We were alone on the mountain since we started when the others where already down.

Changing weather conditions.

More than 100 mountaineers on the summit today (Sunday).

Almageller Hut was absolutely stuffed, but a really nice place to stay.
