Bishorn normal route on skis  Sucess!

Approached via the Turtmann valley to the Tracuit hut in 2 days. Summit day was perfect - clear skies and nice views. The upper slopes were quite icy. Very long and nice descent from the summit back to Zinal. It was possible to ski all the way down to the last parking area (near camping) in Zinal.

Surprise on the glacier  Sucess!

Successful climb from the Tracuit Hut, with two other partners. Windy but clear conditions. Surprisingly, there were many -and big- crevasses on the glacier, just in the neigbourhood of the hut (just stepping into it and there were the big abbys into the ice). Somehow tricky walk through this part. Many people.

Climbed again with two partners. We were using a short window of good weather among periods of clouds, rain, snow. Still a beautiful day in the mountains! We were the first of the hut to reach the summit, partly opennig the track in deep snow! Great!!

Nice peak  Sucess!

After a lot of snowfall the previous 2 days we ascended to Tracuit after the wait in Zinal because the next day the prediction was good. In a long route with snow from 2500m without views of the signals in many points with fog, snowfall,... we reached the cabane de Tracuit after more than 5 hours and we've very tired. We were lucky at night with a beautiful sunset in the refuge. The next day was perfect, one of the best days in panorama in my visits to Alps. To some of my friends it was their first 4000m and I was very happy to help them to make real their dream. A day to remember long time with the impressive vision of a long panorama.
It's not a very important peak, the route is easy,... but the effort is long and the reward is wonderfull. It's a very advisable peak to know the Alps. I love this small peak.

Voie Normale  Sucess!

Just an easy stroll to what I thought was just a high point on the ridge connecting it to the Weisshorn. Still a pleasant day and beautiful view.

Normal Route  Sucess!

We came from Turtmanntal which is a nice alternative to the boring Zinal-ascent. We started from the well kept Turtmannhütte and went down passing by Cab. de Tracuit and further down into Zinaltal.
Nice views on the summit on a cold but clear day.

north face  Sucess!

Climbed this the day after the Bruneckhorn-northface. A lot of new snow. We took a line left of the big serracs, where in normal conditions you find mostly rocks. Not really a classic.
