We have to wait one day because of snow fall. After that we where going up from the Weissmies-Hüttte. The regular is a nice route ...

|Vinny||Route Climbed: West Route Date Climbed: June 2001|
|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!

|PeterCorneliusSpaeth||Route Climbed: West Ridge ? Date Climbed: July 1974|
|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 ... ;-)|
Update: Added the standard route on August 2th, 2008. We were alone on the mountain since we started when the others where already down.
