Did the route on the way back (Aug-11-'05). Still not recommendable.

As seen from Fiesch:

The first icefall is still horrible. Large crevasses.

guides have built some new "steinmänchen" and adjusted some red marks to pass the second icefall.

Third icefall is the easiest. We passed the upper section on the rocks on the left side.



Good knowledge of the area is needed. Get information from local guides to pass the 3 icefalls.

Fieschergletscher descent

update 2013:
Conditions on the Fieschergletscher were fine i.e. the descent was "possible". Nevertheless it was a funny adventure.

For the approach routes to Finsteraarhorn Hut the one from Lötschental vie Hollandia/Konkordia is missing (probably because it takes at least another day).
