Route Climbed: Normal, NW Ridge, Mittelallalin-Feejoch-Allalinhorn Date Climbed: 14th of September in 2005  Sucess!

It was the first 4000er we climbed. But not last. We did not enough time to climb it in 2 days because of bad weather, so we have done it during a day. Unforgettable.

We started from Mittelallalin 3456m. There was perfect snow conditions and visibility. Easy climb, 3 hours to the top.We had fantastic view around.There was not enough place on the top because of crowd. We had to wait for a little to took some picture of us next to the summit cross. We were one and a half hour near the highest point.

Route Climbed: West ridge Feechopf & Feejoch Date Climbed: 28 July 2005  Sucess!

With a cordé of 4 we reached the top without incidents but always with a small threat of not stable weather in the far distance. The normal route was crowded, but 'our' way on the 150 meters II-graded broken rock ridge from Feechopf to the Feejoch was for us only. We came back the same way, via Alphubeljoch to Taschhütte

1/2m of fresh snow, cloudy and a blue sky after reaching Mittelallalin again... :-(

No difficulties reaching this overcrouded summit....

Clouds here, clouds there, clouds almost everywhere. Too bad there was nothing to see from the summit since the weather was poor. A nice and short climb though.

Route Climbed: Hohlaubgrat Date Climbed: 10th July 2005  Sucess!

We (Valerio and Daniele) the BritanniaHutte at 4:40.

Cloudy and cold, the snow started to fall at 5, on the glacer. Right in time to take the rope.

Very nice way, some part stiped, I guess very spectacular with the nice weather. Regular progression till the rock barrier, then we waited about 1 hour a team of climbers arrived there a couple of minutes before us, that forgot to re-arrange the rope before, where the ridge is larger and there is place for the other climbers to pass away (as we have done....!!!!!!!!!).

Total time: about 4:20, but we spent about 1 hour waiting....

Foggy and very cold, the view was constantly less than 50m.

The rocky barrier was covered by 25cm of fresh new snow. Not complicate to pass, there is a short rope in the beginning, then a couple of needles very good.

In case of foggy weather, follow the ridge to the top cross.

To descend form th enormal way, pass the cross and follow the main ridge for about 10 minutes, or descending for about 100 meters, then turn a bit on the left (west) and descend the steped snowfield till the Feejoch.

Then is easy but stil steped and with very large crivasses.

Pay attention to the ice, the cornices (the descendig ridge can have some cornicies) and the crivasses. Stay away from the east side (stiped, with crevasses and seracks) and look to the map carefully.

Third time to the BritanniaHutte, very nice and clean hutte. One of the best I visited.

As a general comment: a very nice ridge. I wormly racomand it!

Route Climbed: Normal Route from Britannia Hutte Date Climbed: May 13, 2005  Sucess!

Planned to do Rimpfishhorn, bailed due to bad weather in the morning. Cleared around 10:30. Easy, uneventful climb to the summit on skis. Great decent with soft afternoon spring snow. Could ski all the way to the very top, even across the summit ridge until I could touch the metal summit cross with skis still on... a true ski mountaineering summit!

By the way, Britannia Hut one of the better mountain huts I've stayed in. Warm, comfortable common room. Clean rooms. Decent food. Expensive being it's only drawback.

An easy climb once you get across the glacier. Britannia Hut is probably the worst Alpine hut in which I've stayed.

Route Climbed: Hohlaubgrat Date Climbed: 8 Juni 2005  Sucess!

First, we hiked from Saas Almagell to the winterraum of Brittania hut.

2 day's later we climbed Allalinhorn with a prefect blue sky, but windy ( 50km/h ) conditions. This resulted in freezing temperatures. There was a lot of snow and ice in the rock section, wich made it a bit more difficult to climb... We were alone at the summit and had a great view !

A fantastic traverse of the mountain from the Britannia hut, wonderful Alpine dawn, blue sky, crisp snow and a great view across to the Matterhorn from the summit.

Route Climbed: From Langflueh by ski mountaineering Date Climbed: 24 April 2004 & 11 May 2003  Sucess!

Climbed twice from Langfluh hutte. The first time I was alone. The weather was partly cloudy but there was a lot of sun. The snow was wonderful. I was with Marantz in a tent in Langfluh the night before. The second time I was with Lele and the day after we climbed Alphubel. Weather perfect!!!

Together with my brother. Very nice weather. Though you can get there fairly easy (cable way) and lots of people climb it, it stays a nice mountain with a fantastic view around.
