Nice and easy mountain amongs giants.Beautiful!!
Easy tour with great views...
even with a headache
It is an nice Mountain for Acclimitization! After 11 times it is enough.
Did it in one day up and down, never again!
Premier 4 000m.
1996: A climb I'll never forget. Only eleven years old and my first ascent of a mountain ever. And immediately a fourthousander too. Hopefully the beginning of a neverending story ...
2004: We made an early start, the weather was nice, the conditions too and we were progressing very fast when the weather started to ruin our climb. Turned back at about 3750 m in a snowstorm and freezing temperatures. Already arrived in the Britanniahut at 8 am. Anyway, I'll be back...
2006: Made a second attempt on the Hohlaub Ridge and this time we were successful. The weather was superb, but conditions were very bad. Almost ended up in a crevasse on the Hohlaubglacier, but my companions held the rope tight. No further problems, reached the summit at 9 o'clock.
2007: Ascent of the North Ridge in superb conditions. Made it trough the summit in an hour and a half. Recommended ;-)
2015: For old time's sake once more up to the Allalinhorn via the normal route. It stays an outstanding view point.
First 4000m peak and being honest: it was easy! Only 500 altitude meters, but what a view!!! Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Italian plains, Monte Rosa,...
The only downside being such an easy accesable summit: crowded by good weather.
But surely I'll do it again some time, maybe for acclimatisation and for the view
A nice day with best weater conditions.
Too bad that it's so crowded up there, but it is a very easy one of course. Nevertheless, I will go back there, the view is just too great and impressive. You can even see Weiss- and Bishorn from the plateau under the summit! Just great. Absolutely one to do again on a quiet early morning.
Dit is echt een schitterende beklimming met een uitzicht die ik niet vaker ben tegen gekomen! Echt geweldig. Ik heb hem beklommen samen met Korien Termaat en we hebben er echt van genoten! Zeker een aanrader voor iedereen die een 4000 meter top wil beklimmen en nog niet toe is aan het echte klim werk! Deze berg zou ik wel twee keer willen beklimmen zo mooi is zij!!

Second time on this summit. Even if there are way too many people it remains a beautiful place.
With snowshoes from Britannia hut. Nice day with good weather, no one else at the top.
My second ascent. This time together with Martin (see next entry) and two other friends. Unfortunately one of us experienced a terrifying bad crevasse fall while descending. The lucky guy survived. Thanks to the Airzermatt staff. They really did a very professional and fast job.
Realy nice day, a lot of skiers up this day, think we where the only ones walking.
Slept in a tent to try high alpine camping..
Doing Allalinhorn solo.
Nice walk on the Fee glacier from Längfluehut up to Feejoch. Easy acent to summit. Good weather conditions. Managed to get there before the big crowds.
Well, we got there and back before the snow went funny. Cracking views of the Pennine Alps, especially the rimpfischorn from the top
Beautiful mountain, great view but unfortunately too many people!
By marvellous weather, it is the first 4000 peak reached by me and the second for my friend Jean-Yves.
After nearly a week of bad weather, the skies finally cleared and we were able to climb this fantastic route. We took only 4 hours from the Brittania Hut and descended to Mittel Allalin in 1 hour.
