The wake up call in the Oberaletsch Hut 2640m is at 2am, because it's a long tour with 1700metres in altitude. In the beginning there is a descent with ladders & steal cables to the moraine of the Oberaletschglacier. We followed the "installed reflectors" along the steep moraine & rock flank to point 3101m - then over the ridge to the point 3382m. Here we entered the glacier with colossal crevasses and we carefully crossed the bridges that lead over the huge crevasses - which leads to the next section - the south west ridge. Climbing in the 2-3 UIAA degree along the securing-poles to the peak of the Aletschhorn 4195m. We only required six hours - rater than the 7-8 hours mentioned in the guide book.
After the Finsteraarhorn 4273m, the Aletschorn 4195m is the 2nd highest mountain in the Bernese Alps. The Aletschhorn is surrounded by three great glaciers:
the Great Aletschglacier, the Middle Aletschglacier & the Upper Aletschglacier.
