Route Climbed: Hollandiahütte - Fieschersattel - Fiescherhorn Date Climbed: may 2017  Sucess!

2011: Failed to include both Fiescherhorns during crossing on skis from Konkordiahütte to Finsteraarhornhütte via Fieschersattel.

2017: Climbed both Gross and Hinter Fiescherhorn in perfect conditions during crossing on skis from Hollandiahütte to Finsteraarhornhütte via Fieschersattel. Descent to Fiescherfirn through serac zone was in good condition but it's very exposed to falling seracs from above. No place to wander around too long.

Late season climb  Sucess!

My Swiss alpine weekend in October was a success. During the last week of the Mönchjochut-season I entered the Ewigschneefeld in complete darkness at 6.00am. After one hour descending, I climbed up through to the Fieschersattel, which was in excellent condition. I had the summit of Gross Fiescherhorn entirely to myself. After downclimbing to the col I of course also climbed the Hinter Fiescherhorn, which was very accessible from the Fieschersattel. The long ascent up through the Ewigschneefeld back to the Mönchjochut was a killer...

Normal NW Ridge Route from Monchsjochhutte  Sucess!

We started at almost 5AM from Mönchsjochhütte on very hard, frozen snow. The final very steep pitches to the summit were somewhat intimidating to me (particularly on the descent) because of the dramatic exposure! Fortunately there were excellent steps to follow in the hard snow so it was actually fairly easy; however, the snow was becoming quite mushy further down at the Ewigschneefeld by late morning (we were back at the hut by 12:45). My son Christoph and our local guide Dominick joined me on this spectacular climb.

traverse with ski  Sucess!

from Konkordiahutte (reached from Fiesch) a windy and cold ski day through the fieschersattel. Nice climbing on the icy ridge and good skiing down to finsteraarhornhutte

Horrible weather  Sucess!

Camped under Konkordia hut on the glacier for a week to climb several 4000rs. The only successfull summit due to wind, snow, rain whole week...still the Konkordia is the one of the most amazing places in the ALps.

Long snow plod  Sucess!

From the Monchsjochhutt we ventured to the Gross Fiescherhorn over the normal route. Due to heavy snowfall in the previous week and above freezing temperatures it was a long and tiring snow plod. However the view from the top on the surrounding mountains was great.

A great traverse  Sucess!

We set off from our tent near the Moenchsjochhuette. The lower sections of the NE-ridge were trickier than we expected, but the descent to the Fieschersattel and ascent of the Hinter Fiescherhorn were straightforward. A long tedious slog back across the Ewigschneefeld.

Fieschergrat  Sucess!

North-West Ridge, great climb to the summit of the Gross Fiescherhorn. Tricky ice slope lower down the ridge. Also traversed over to the Hinter Fiescherhorn.

Hinteres Fiescherhorn from Eewigschneefeld  Sucess!

Long glacier walk to the bottom of the Hinteres Fiescherhorn. Then a nice, but never too steep/difficult climb up to the Grunhornlucke. The rock was easy and loose at the start but improved quickly.

Traverse from Klein Grünhornlücke  Sucess!

After summitting Gross Grünhorn earlier in the morning I downclimbed to Klein Grünhornlücke, the saddle in between Klein Grünhorn/Gross Grünhorn and Hinter Fiescherhorn. From the saddle I climbed the easy rocky ridge up the Hinter Fiescherhorn. The climb was uneventful but enjoyable.
From the summit of the Hinter Fiescherhorn I continued to the direction of the Gross Fiescherhorn. The bergschrund was badly caped making it quite difficult to find a place to cross it solo. I had to follow the bergschrund relatively far. From there I took the most direct line up the steep rocky face towards the top of the ridge which I reached very close to the summit. Summitted and continued down the normal route towards the Mönchjochhütte.
I was very pleased to my achievement of the day; Three 4000-meter summits in a single day making it in only 10,5 hours. Oh yeah, solo!

Route Climbed: Fiescher Sattel from Ewigscheefeld

Stayed at the very nice Bergli hut. Climbed up to Fiescher saddle via the so called 'normal' route from Ewigschneefeld. This is not advisable due to much loose rock (time of year, temp too high) on the last part underneath the saddle. Turned back some 60m underneath the summit (route-finding problem + prospect of having to descend the same (or other) way). The NW ridge seems a better option + I won't come back unless on skis... I hate snow kicking...

Normal Route from Monchjochhutte  Sucess!

Nice mountain. Incredibly good day out. Decent thick powder on the descent. Why you wouldn't do it on skis astounds me.

Hurricane force winds and white out conditions forced us to take the very expensive Jungfraujoch railway down rather than risk a long blind walk down the glaciar... be careful not to get "stuck" or allow enough time/food/money if you do!

Route Climbed: NW Ridge Date Climbed: August 10th, 2005  Sucess!

We started at the Mönchsjochütte and traversed the Gross Fiescherhorn. Ascend over NW ridge and descend over SE ridge to Fieschersattel. Then descend to Finsteraarhornhütte. There was a lot of snow on NW ridge (AD) and hard, cold wind tried to blow us of the ridge. Nice exposed climb.
