ESE Grat  Sucess!

Climbed ESE Ridge with Francois and gang. The climb was serendipitous in that I met Francois the previous evening while hitch hiking from Geneva to Belgrade. We hit a storm at Furkapass but the following day was gorgeous. I was hoping to add on the Niedermann Andreuthi which looks like an awesome route but I didnt have a partner, alas, later that evening I ended up in Ticino.

Climbed the "Wand-platten"  Sucess!

Some very slabby climbing but also some beautiful flakes and cracks higher up!

ESE Ridge  Sucess!

Great ridge. Be sure to stay on the ridge or otherwise you will end up scrambling half of the route. There is still a lot of snow in the Uri Alps for the time of the year.

Route climbed: Via Evalin  Sucess!

Nice climb and a great atmosphere. You have an excellent view of teh ESE ridgeNice climbing the first 4 pitches, grades are as reported in the Sweiz Plaisir guid book. After that however the difficulty is much lower than suggested in the guidebook. Nice summit! but a long way to get to the car from there.

ESE Ridge  Sucess!

Good stuff, more abseil anchors than the guidebook says (Schweiz Plaisir), so even with slightly shorter ropes should be ok.

....when italy got the world football championship  Sucess!

route climbed: ESE ridge

that morning we woked up at 3:15 and we run to the Furkapass. In a couple of hour from there we reached the starting point of the ESE ridge to the grossFurkahorn. 3 hours and 15 to the top. And then run back home in time for the football match. Was a really intensive day

We (Valerio+Max and Davide+Bruno) reached the summit by ESE ridge.
Nice ambiental climbing, good rock. A bit dicontinous but wonderfull

Nice climb, in reasonable weather. There was a lot of snow in the route wich, in combination with other climbers, slowed us down quite a bit.
