Beautiful Tour to Alphubel 4206m.
my picture are here: Link to Alphubel 4206m
Classic ski route from Taschutte.5 hours.Very bad snow.
Very nice ski-mountaineering from Täschhütte together with Sebastian. Constantly raising ascent of 1500 meters of elevation.
Great skiing down especially all through the passage from Alphubeljoch to Chummiboden.
Started together with my friend at Mittel Allalin, then over Feejoch, Feechopf and Alphubeljoch to the SE ridge. Climbed the ridge and skied down via the normal route. Nice weather in general, except at the summit when it started to snow, causing problems with finding the route down. Summited late afternoon, all the crowds were gone long ago, very enjoyable solitude...
Nice climb with Niklas from Taeschhuette on a perfect day.
I had some unfinished business there.
Aug 20 2006 Attempt with Jck(SP member)but been stopped few meters below Alphubeljoch - white-out.
Climbed SE Ridge, July 16 2007. Bad, melted snow causing problems with descent(Normal-avalanche risk). We slept in a tent over the Tashhutte. Good mountain for aclimatization.
Climbed with Neil from Metroalpin station, enjoyable,but with mixed weather. Cimbed with a view to Tasch-Dom traverse, but felt dodgy at altitude. Descended to Langflue for a beer, then cablecar down. Glacier quite snowy and track led us under a big icecliff which was not nice! Lots of debris around.
We where the first party after a period of heavy snowfall. Some topos give this route a minor PD+, I don't agree it's fare more difficult (an English topo says AD+ and a lot more difficult after bad weather). I just want to say: don't underestimate this route, it can be quit difficult like we experienced.
We passed the crux and most technical difficulties. Then my partners shoulder got dislocated. Suddenly we were in an awful possition high on the ridge (almost on top of the route). Climbing was not possible anymore so Air-Zermatt got us out. Thanx to the great work of the rescue team and our mobile phone we got out safely!
I climbed the Rotgrat with Erik; very nice route!
This ascent was our "acclimation" befor the Matterhorn.
Great skiing all the way down to Saas Fee!
Climbed the route with Radek ( brade ), Lukasz and Grzegorz- much more interesting and beautiful than we expected. Descended by normal route to the glacier and traversed by very avalanche-prone slopes to Alphubeljoch.
Radek and me also tried the ridge in August 2006 but been stopped few meters below Alphubeljoch- heavy snowfall and almost zero vsibility.
In both cases we slept in a tent over the Tashhutte- wonderful place!!
Miteel-Allalin - Alphubeljoch - Alphubel - Langflue
Very hot day! My climbing partner went in underwear to the summit. Nice ridge from Alphubeljoch, but much snow. The descent went very quick.
We crossed Alphubel to come to Mischabeljoch and Täschhorn
Nice trip with fine view on Monte Rossa Masiff and Matterhorn
Started from Längflue hut to Feejoch - Feechopf, Alphubeljoch and up the NE-flank. Returned to the Längflue over entire NE-flank. Good weather but huge crevasses.
Four people reached the summit on a clear morning of July. The upper part of the route had hard firn/broken ice that I estimated of a 45 grades inclination (aproximately 150 mtrs). Few people on the top. We descended by the normal sky route which is not so crevasses-free as I had expected.
Magnificent day and a route in topconditions. The Eisnase itself was covered in excellent firn. Very beautifull ridge and magnificent views. It was so clear we could even see the Pizz Bernina-group from there.
