Starting point for Lauteraarhorn?

I am thinking of climbing Lauteraarhorn this summer, so I informed me of climbing possibilities, huts etc.
But I have never heard that it makes sense to climb Lauteraarhorn from Gleckstein hut. I think this takes much too long time.
Could you add the times and difficulties for the routes from Gleckstein hut?
Missed this hut at sp for Wetterhorn climb - thanks for adding.
Cheers Thomas

Re: Starting point for Lauteraarhorn?

Hi and thanks,
I have seen Lauteraarhorn listed as an option from the Gleckstein Hut in several sources. Without knowing in detail I think it includes traversing the Schreckhorn which in no way is the obvious way for climbing the Lauteraarhorn. I will try to look into it some more.

Re: Starting point for Lauteraarhorn?

The traverse from Schreckhorn is extremely dangerous, nearly no possibility to secure and 7-8 h from Schreckhorn hut. So from Gleckstein hut some more hours and the most difficult part at the end. So this route normally makes no sense. (I donĀ“t want to make suicid! ;-))
