Route Climbed: Normal Route from Saas Fee Date Climbed: March 13, 2005  Sucess!

Excellent weather and wide view from the top. Somewhat complex micro-route finding through the glaciars from the piste to get to a wide avenue leading left (South) towards the summit. Suddenly gets steeper at around 4000m and skis must be deposited. Lack of recent snow made for a somewhat scetchy ascent over verglass onto the summit shelf. From there, back to softer snow. But two or three very large and scary bergshrunds made for a long zigzag ascent and a couple scary jumps across the ends. I had to do this part solo as my partner had bailed and I definitely would NOT recommend doing this part unroped!

Route Climbed: Skimountaineering from Langflue Date Climbed: 25 April 2004  Sucess!

Nice climb with Lele & Marantz. Too much wind didn't give us a good skiing. The panorama was fantastic!!

Route Climbed: Normal from Langflue Date Climbed: 4 August 2003  Sucess!

The night was fantastic: we ( Valerio, Daniele, Luigi)woke up very early and in the darkness under a full-stars deep blue sky we start the wolking along the glacers.

Many crevasses, you need to be very careful.

In the last 300m when the path sloped up suddenly, under the rising sun was unbeliveable worm.

We reach the summit in 3:20.

Magnificent view all around, strange prospective on the Mischabel.

I guess very nice with ski.

Route Climbed: Normal from Langflue haus at the cablestation Date Climbed: 27 August 2004  Sucess!

Together with my brother. Funny Flemish guy being the chief of the hut/restaurant at the cablestation. Very nice weather, quite warm. Day before 20 cm fresh snow had fallen. No track anymore. Start at the right side of the last ski-lift. Nice view again.

Route Climbed: Normal from Mittelallalin Date Climbed: 1999  Sucess!

It is a nice small ridge from Feejoch up to Alphubeljoch. You have to search for the summit, because it is a large plateau.

Route Climbed: SO Ridge from Alphubeljoch Date Climbed: Juli 2000  Sucess!

In a period of really bad weather we've made the Alphubel via the SO-Ridge. There are only 2 other people at the summit and no others at any other route to the alphubel. Seems to happen not so often ...

Route Climbed: ski route - east flank from Laengfluh Date Climbed: May 30th 1999  Sucess!

perfect snow conditions at the last day before closing of the Laengfluh hut. There were about 80 mostly italian climbers with us on the hut and most of them on the summit (where you could play soccer) - and everyone used his mobil phone!

Easy but nice. Big and flat summit. Solo.

Route Climbed: Rotgrat Date Climbed: 1998  Sucess!

Probably the most interesting way to climb the Alphubel, good introduction to ridge climbing. There is some tricky route finding on the upper part of the climb. Deffinitly worth doing if you are in the area.

Route Climbed: From Metro Alpin via Feekopf Date Climbed: 1 March 2001  Sucess!

Tried to reach the summit with skis, but left them

soon at the rocky ridge. Continued on foot through

sometimes deep snow over feejoch (crevasses!)

Sunny day with strong wind -> freeeeezing

Beautiful view on Matterhorn all the way to Mt.Blanc.

Route Climbed: Rotgrat Date Climbed: 1985  Sucess!

quiet mixed climb ( we were alone )

very cold, you meet the sun when you reach the summit. ( west face of the mountain )

last 300 m in the rock face is the hardest part of the climb ( AD+ / D )
