Took the Facile route from the Alpin Metro through the top of the piste. Was a pleasant walk, good weather and my first time on glaciated terrain. The downer is the unfortunate news that a fatality occured just above us on the glacier. Apparently one of the easier 4000'ers in the Alps but every mountain can be deadly.
The next day after Strahlhorn we climbed with Kasia this nice ridge. As usual we had to wait on the narrow snowy ridge because of little traffic jam on rocky step II UIAA.Great weather and conditions, dry and warm rock. We descended via normal route ,took cable car to Felskin and hiked back to our ten. Descent to Saas Allmagel- the same day,or rather night ;)
Even an easy mountain can be somewhat difficult. We started on skis from Saas-Fee and summited in pretty bad weather. Only people on the summit.
Climbed the normal route. Conditions were absolutely perfect. Upon seeing the conditions, we really wanted to try the NE Ridge but we only brought two screws and alpine axes.
A very good route.
No difficulties and great weather, but too much people.
Round trip in a few hours from the Metro Alpin. We where the only ones on the route that day.
Many times on the summit of Allalinhorn (around 15).On the picture with my children Unai (5) and Jon (7) and friends Rafa and Juan Carlos.
Lovely little route
We had a ”simple” snow scramble from Mittel Allalin above Saas Fee, (August 23, 1991).
With Carlo and Fabietto, then to Crans Montana to Camilla and MArina. Very nice day!
Very nice route especially after doing the Strahlhorn normal route the day before (which was really just a long slog up and down the glacier).
The descent to Mittel Allalin presented some unbelievable situations passing the numerous tourists (including a man with his wife who had to ask us how to rope up... he 'forgot' how to make a figure of eight knot... there was also a man with his maybe 8year old son tied together, combined with some big enough crevasses to cross... we couldn't believe our eyes). Amazing that there aren't more accidents here...
and then descent of the normal route.
Also an ascent and descent of the normal route.
easy and nice Hohlaubgrat from Britanniahütte
Easy climb and good for acclimatisation. Walking up the skying piste was no fun though.
Roped with my older brother Jon (8) and dad, and along with Juan carlos and Rafa summited on a beautiful day.
Roped with my younger brother Unai (5) and dad, and along with Juan carlos and Rafa summited this scenic mountain. Congratulations Unai !!!
Climbed Hohlaubgrat with Nikman. Some icy passages in late august.
Climbed Hohlaubgrat with Sebastian and Frank. Nice route and a lot more worth it than the normal route.
