Traverse Konkordiahut -> Finsteraarhut  Sucess!

Traverse from Konkordia hut to Finsteraarhorn hut via Grünegghorn to summit and rappelling from the "Lücke" down to Fieschergletscher.
Traversing Grünegghorn was quite interesting due to lack of steps plus clouds coming in; the summit arrete of Grossgrünhorn was mostly dry and not difficult at all, leaving only the bergschrund as a (little) challenge.
Hardest part was the rappel route (!). We easily found the begin but although we had a detailed briefing at the hut and carefully investigated the terrain we failed to follow the stances... like all the others, too.
So after 3 or 4 pitches we ended at improvised slings in vertical rubbish and it took us nearly two hours for perhaps 150 vertical meters.

Via Klein Grünhorn  Sucess!

My original plan for the day was only to traverse both of the Fiescherhorns starting early from the Mönchjochhütte. However, I approached the Klein Grünhornlücke relatively fast so I headed to Klein Grünhorn and then to Gross Grünhorn. I arrived to the summit of Gross Grünhorn 3,5 hours after starting from the hut. On the same day I traversed over the Fiescherhorns back to the Mönchjochhütte.
Quite a demanding climb due to the bad quality of the rock and the steepness of the route.

Route Climbed: Via Gruenegghorn from Konkordiaplatz Date Climbed: May 2, 2005  Sucess!

Uneventful climb up in perfect weather. Easy scrambling on the summit ridge. Good spring conditions skiing down, and nice long steep open glaciar bowl. Good fun.
