Marvellous landscape

Together with my brother. Windy, sunny, cold weather. 20 Cm fresh snow, so messy approach over the glacier. Rather small ridge to the top, a bit scary, with the strong winds. Very nice view around.

An enjoyable climb for training with the most beautiful look at the connecting ridge to the mighty Weisshorn.

Route Climbed: Normal from Tracuit Date Climbed: Sat 14th of August  Sucess!

What a stormy night it had been!!! It sometimes seemed like we were in an airplane instead of the sleeping-rooms. It was still storming heavily when we had breakfast and we waited together with the guides and their customers for first day light, to see whether we could see anything. But then as a total surprise... at half past five, it stopped snowing, and ten minutes later it cleared out totaly. The wind, however, remained quite heavy. The glacier-walk to the summit got some true arctic characteristics. So cold!!!

I shot a few video-images on the col between the two summits.. It almost looks like footage from the everest south col, except no bottles and tents... My two fellow rope-mates, totaly unrecognisable (because of the way we were dressed to keep the wind from our faces and bodys), in a wind-swept scenery with lots of powdersnow flying around, and a gailforce wind that made talking to each other almost impossible.

Fortunately, under the summit we could stand out of the wind for the first time since we left the hut, and enjoy a splendid view which none of us had expected after such a rough night.

Easy route suitable for beginners like us, unfortuntely quite crowded. I regret a bit not trying the route through Weisshornjoch - the part before the col is a bit steeper, but there are no crowds.

Early in the morning, with the sunrise, we arrived at the summit of Bishorn. But this was just a small step for this day because we continued our climb over the Weisshorn nordridge to reach the summit of that famous peak.

Route Climbed: NW Flank Climbed: august 2003 / july 2015 / july 2019  Sucess!

2003: Not much of an interesting climb, but the view from the top is overwhelming and really worth the climb. So happily the weather was fine.

2015: Back again on the Bishorn, we are too slow and turn back about 200m below the summit.

2019: Smooth climb to the summit of the Bishorn on our way to the Weisshorn via the North Ridge. Unfortunately we abandoned the climb at the top of the first turm. Being tired and last in line (some queuing at the rappels), we lost appetite to continue.

Albert, Anton, Albrecht and I (friends from the German Alpine Club in Ulm) wanted to make the Bishorn - Weisshorn - Traverse. But due to heavy snowfall the night before, the rocks had a lot of new snow (about 20cm) and were icy. Therefore we turned around on the top of Bishorn. Some weeks later, I climbed Weisshorn solo instead ...


Huberschwiller - Aug 22, 2003 3:30 pm

Route Climbed: NW face, normal route Date Climbed: 21 august 2003  Sucess!

We opened up through 20 cm new snow fallen during the last night over 3500 meters. Started at 6 h, we were the first on the summit at 9 h 40. About 20 persons summited this day. According to the good conditions, we could remove the crampons for the descent. The Turtmanngletscher was very crevassed this year after an incredibly hot summer in the Alps.
