Climbed the Grünegghorn and the SW-ridge with my climbing partner Helmut.
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.
Nice and long climb over the Grunegghorn from the Concordiahuette.
From Konkoridahutte along the winter ski way on west side.
Lovely glacer ski route with some crevasses.
Climbed directly to the top from the terminal crivasse
Climbed in 2001

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.
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.
as described on the ski route page. The day started fine but we reached the summit in clouds. Very nice firn snow for downhill (trip report in German)
