2011: The first day in the Bergseeschijen hut we climbed the Schijenstock and were back in the hut just before the afternoon rain showers started. The second day rain caught up with us during descent of the Hochschijen. The third day we were hit by a thunderstorm on the South Ridge of the Bergseeschijen just after topping out the Via Andrea. When the worst was over we abseiled back over the Via Andrea.
2017: Nice climb over the South Ridge. Only 1 party behind us.
The previous day my Swiss friend Spring Dieter and I had climbed Vorbau, it my first multi-pitch route.
We climbed Morgenstund (5 pitches, mostly grade 4C and 5a); we were the only ones on the mountain that day and it was an awesome climb.
Climbed Sud-Grat in 1979 and Tonis Lust in 2010. Both the routes are very fine.
Nice combination on this mountain is to start with the vorbau (4 ropelengths) continue with the wall (via andrea in our case) and finish up the S-ridge. In total 13 ropelengths I think. Hardest pitches in this combination are 5a.
Beautifull bombproof granite, nice and varied climbing. Summit book was gone. Descent was a little tricky because of some iced up patches.
Great Climb, Weather & View.
A climb (IV+) about 3 hours to the summit.
