Fletschhorn normal route  Sucess!

A great and very bueatiful climb. Technically not difficult, rather long. We started from Hohsaas at 8am. We descended 300 meters towards the Weissmieshütte. Coming from above, we couldn't find the starting point of the route immediately, but around 8.45am we managed to reach the bottom of the Tälligletscher at around 3000m. Luckily the snow was frozen so we made good progress on the lower snowfields right up to the Früstuckplatz at 3600m. Later during climbing season when these snowfields start to disappear this part can become much more difficult. We traversed the Grüebugletscher towards the summit where we were rewarded with absolutely stunning views in all directions. The descent took more time as by now, especially beneath 3600m snow had become very soft which made progress more slow. After 8 hours we were back at Kreuzboden. It was a very beautiful and rewarding climb.

Normal route / traverse solo  Sucess!

Climbed the normal route from the Weissmies hut solo. Tried to traverse the Lagginhorn, but weather turned bad when I reached the base of the Lagginhorn NE-ridge, so went back, basically traversing Fletschhorn for the 2nd time on the same day.

Normal Route  Sucess!

Very nice climb in perfect weather. That made up for the previous day when I made my way up to the Weissmiess Hut in the pouring rain and thick fog...and got lost. Eventually I did stumble upon the hut and saved myself :-)

Route: Fletschorn-Lagginhorn Traverse  Sucess!

Climbed a little couloir (35 degrees steep) to gain the south-west ridge. Then on crumbly rock to the summit and from there continued with the traverse to Lagginhorn. Great mountain though, not as busy as some other mountains in the area just because it is not 4000m :P

I would not recommend the south-west ridge of the Fletschorn, too much lose rock and no interesting climbing. Rather take the normal route, nicer and quicker. Especially if you do Fletschorn as part of the traverse you need your time so take the normal route.

Route Climbed: normal route Date Climbed: 31 july  Sucess!

It would be a beautiful day, but there were clouds till 3600 meters. Above the clouds the view was beautiful. In four hours we were on the summit along way to go to the Laginhorn!

Route Climbed: West Flank + Traverse to Lagginhorn Date Climbed: july 2005  Sucess!

Started with good weather the first time, but when we reached the col at about 3600m, the weather turned bad. It became very cold, windy, and visibility was less than 20 meters...for us the sign to turn back.

Only a week later we were there again. This time we roped up with 2 Swiss guys. We started at 4 o'clock in the morning and reached the summit by 7 o'clock. No clouds and an amazing atmosphere. Too bad my camera failed up there :os

Continued with the traverse to the Lagginhorn.

Route Climbed: normalroute and N-face-Breitlaub ridge Date Climbed: aug 1995 and 13 Aug 2000  Sucess!

Been twice on this beautiful mountain.

First time normalroute from Weismiesshut. Easy glacierwalk PD. 2 time N-face(wienerroute) from bivac 40-60’ D+. Excellent conditions until Thunderstorm came. 2 hours from begin face to Wachte. I have been chopping my ass of getting though the

corniche!! 1h. Im very sorry for that, and hope the mountain has recovered since my brutal attack...... Lucky for us the storm passed us quickly. On top at sunrise, very good. Descended via the Breitlaui ridge, loose rocks all over..

Route Climbed: NW Ridge (Normal) Date Climbed: 11 Aug 1987  Sucess!

Climbed with Monica Spicker. 1987 was a terrible weather year in the Swiss Alps. This day was very windy and cold with the mountain in and out of cloud. A group from Norway that arrived on the summit shortly after us declared that we had just made "The first winter ascent in summer."

Route Climbed: Northface/Wienerroute Date Climbed: July/26/2001

The Northface of the Fletschhorn is a really classic one! But it is objectively dangerous because of icefall and stonefall, especially if it's becoming warm in the morning and at noon.

We climbed the short cut from the northface to the W-ridge and did not climb the 20 to 30 min. on the W-ridge to the summit, since bad weather was coming. So we rushed down and reached the Weissmieshut just in that moment when the thunderstorm started. So we really had luck.
