Route Climbed: Nadelgrat to Galenjoch Date Climbed: september 2012  Sucess!

Traversed the Nadelgrat from the Mischabelhütte to the Galenjoch. Extremely long tour!

The climb from the Hohbergjoch to the summit is fast and easy. The descent to the Dirrujoch is a little bit slower and more difficult.

Route Climbed: Nadelgrat  Sucess!

We climbed the Nadelgrat from the Bordier hut starting at the Galenjoch and traversing Dirruhorn, Hobärghorn & Stecknadelhorn. Galenjoch to Dirruhorn took half of the time of the whole ridge - much snow, no tracks. Decided to cross the Nadelhorn north face and descend without the summit due to the time. Most of the rock fragile, but not that difficult. Though an interesting climb in a spectacular ambiance, following this nice pearl necklet. In the afternoon the Ried glacier already was one single swampy minefield.

Route Climbed: Ridge from Nadelhorn/ Stecknadelhorn Date Climbed: July 2003  Sucess!

I went up solo from the Mischabel hut via the Windjoch and Nadelhorn, bypassing the summit of the Nadelhorn (traverse on snow slope) and joining the ridge to the Stecknadelhorn. On my own, I found the rock ridge of the Stecknadelhorn longer than expected and insecure-feeling thanks to the large amounts of loose rock, at times walking/scrambling over steep slopes of broken rock. The actual Hohbergorn summit was very simple, including a good look at that rock ridge which I had to do again on the way back. Some exposed icy bits on the Nadelhorn ridge, though not really worrying.

Route Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: August 1998  Sucess!

I came from the Mischabelhut with Cas van der Gevel and Fedor Broekhoven who did the Northeast Face of Lenzspitze the same day. I hiked to Windjoch and got up to 4000 meters to Nadelhorn. Then traverse to the face over the glacier with massiv crevasses. The Face in 2 hours and back to Nadelhorn, Windjoch and the hut. I was as fast as the other two who came also over Nadelhorn back.

Route Climbed: NNW ridge Date Climbed: July 1988  Sucess!

We climbed Hohberghorn as part of the Nadelgrat. We started from the Bordier hut, climbed Dirruhorn, Hohberghorn, descent to Hohbergjoch. We had to give up the rest of the Nadelgrat because our partie was a bit too slow. We descended Hohbergjoch in the direction of the Dom hut.

Route Climbed: Northface Date Climbed: July/23/2001  Sucess!

The northface is kind of classic, although only 350 hm. The northface is a lonly and beautiful place in an overcrowded region.
