Greatly enjoyed the rock climbing pitches on the way up, although it took me some time to get adjusted to using crampons on rocks! The views from the summit were awesome.

Our return (on the way down from Obergabelhorn) was much more tiring and reminded me of the descent from the Hornli ridge of Matterhorn.

We climbed a short variant on our way to the obergabelhorn, but had to return due an accident of two swiss climbers behind us on our way to the Ober Gabelhorn summit.

GaffrRoute Climbed: NE Ridge from the Rothorn Hut. Date Climbed: August 2003.  Sucess!
An enjoyable if at times worrying climb - rockfalls onto the glacier! The upper gneiss ridge to the snow cone is solid and good value.

I guess because of a warm summer in the Alps we actually found the route free of snow and ice. The rock pitch was fantastic with perfect jug holds and no verglass. An enjoyable snow climb to the summit on perfect plastic/consolidated snow lead to a great sunrise...we then went on to the Obergabelhorn. A fairly big day for the "uninitiated"/first timers in the Alps! But a great day of mountaineering!

We (Gilbert, Luc and myself) started from the Rotornhut after a night of bad weather and snowfall. As we reached the snowsholder we could see that the rocks where covered with snow and that routefinding would be very difficult. But we start climbing anyway and we reached the summit after 6 hours. The intension was to do the Obergabelhorn but after the summit of Wellenkuppe we turned back to the hut. The PD turned into AD+ or D in bad conditions. A lot of lose rocks covered with snow ! Scarry!

Lots of scree. Snow on the rocks higher on the mountain. I wouldn't advise anyone to climb Wellenkuppe other than a mountain on your way to Obergabelhorn

We found very poor conditions: slabs covered with lot of ice and snow. As a result we need hours for a part of the ridge done in only half an hour on good conditions. We aborted the attempt.
