Route Climbed: Normal route (W flank)  Sucess!

Leading an alpine club youth group (JDAV).
Intended to climb the Hohlaubgrat, but the Britannia hut was booked out. Never seen so many "tourists" on a glacier, in jeans, without a rope. Sad.

Metro Alpin  Sucess!

Solo from Allalin (Metro Alpin) to the top, initialy it was difficult to know were the path was due to a lot of work on the glacier.
At start with clouds and fog but it gott better and the summit it self was sunny. On my way back I was helped by a swiss tour which insisted that I was to go with them. Many thanks for the help/assistance!.
Conditions: cloudy, lots of loose snow and +2 to +10.

Normal Route  Sucess!

Climbed the Normal Route for most of the time. Got off the route some 200m below the summit and made a Summit traverse from West to East, back down again on the Normal Route.
Very windy on the summit and kind of crowded...
Anyway, a great climb and fantastic views!

Hohlaubgrat  Sucess!

Ascent from Britannia hütte via Hohlaubgrat route, descent via normal route to Mittelallalin.
Weather was great, surprisingly few people on the route, but many in the hütte.
(A túrát Somkuti Nándor vezette nagyszerûen.)

North East Face  Sucess!

Nice day out. We climbed the north east face from the top of the Metro Alpin. We didn't take the direct ridge but a bit more to the right. It was icy, about 55 degrees, until it eased a bit toward the summit wall. The twenty people who were waiting at the summit were looking pretty surprised at us.

Holaubgrat - Super Day  Sucess!

Fantastic day up Holaubgrat. No wind, perfect conditions. Make sure you arrive before 9am at summit to avoid the crwods coming up from Normal route. Amusing what kind of "mountaineers" come up. A beautiful view on peaks around on a clear day!

First 4000, Hohlaubgrat  Sucess!

Sea level to 4000m in 48 hours on my first 4000m peak! It was punishing! The short climb at the top of the Hohlaubgrat was fun although a little sketchy with some powder snow.

Quite day  Sucess!

I´ve climbed the mountain from Mittelallalin. 30cm deep snow, but mostly a good track. No people on the way up and on the summit. I´ve seen seven mountaineers coming up on the descent. And thousands on the ski-piste. ;-)

Hohlaubgrat and traverse  Sucess!

We bivvied instead of using the hut as the warden said the hut was full, it blatantly wasnt that evening, anyway the ascent went quite easily in very good conditions. Why all the ironmongery on the rocks at the top though? The climbing is only PD and there's loads of easy natural belays. If you aren't up to the challenge, do a different route.
