Solo in Nov.  Sucess!

Climbed solo in Nov 2015 from Längflue. I was the only one climbing this day. I have found open door to the hut, so could spend the night there, despite it is normally closed after the season.
Lot of snow, start 6am, in total 7 hours up from Längflue and down to Saas Fee.

Hohlaubgrat  Sucess!

Very pleasant short day climb, in the company of my son Christoph and Pierrot, a local guide. We got off the first AM Metroalpin train which stopped at the "hole" station (at ~3200 m, to avoid an overnight stay at the Britannia hut). A quick descent to the glacier and then we followed the standard Hohlaubgrat climb to the summit. For the descent we used the normal route to the Mittelallalin Metroalpin station.

We had very soft snow conditions because of the prevalent heat wave in the area. We encountered countless crevasses during the ascent and even on the "easy"descent route!

Traversed  Sucess!

2nd ascent of this peak for me following solo ascent via normal route almost exactly 5 years before. This time with my son Keith and rgg we ascended via normal route and descended Hohlaubgrat to Britania Hut. A really fine day out in excellent conditions.
Much more snow than 5 years before.

The shortest route  Sucess!

Quick and dirty - but fun though. Especially if the steeper nose is climbed.

2nd time  Sucess!

Our Original plan was to climb Alphubel over Feechopf from Mittelallalin. Unfortunately the weather was too bad, so we decided to go for a (fast) Allalin climb. No views at all but my two friends summitted for the first time, which was great.

Hohlaubgrat, solo  Sucess!

Quick climb from the Britannia hytte. Rock step was delicate due to ice and fresh snow. Climbed down this beautiful ridge.

Normal route

The easiest way how to reach first 4000er and get a bit of a aclimatization..

A mixed day  Sucess!

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.
