Glacier not easy to navigate through crevasses, needed two big jumps. After the big crevasses it's better to go up left to the saddle unlike we did, we followed the glacier and climbed the steeper part of the glacier with snow and crevasses
Fantastic hike. We left the Britanniahütte at 04.00. First you go down to the glacier and from there we headed towards the ridge. Because of the hot weather, the snow was soft that made it a little more uncomfortable but the views were amazing along the way. At the wall we had some problems hiking it because of the snow on the rocks. We descended by the normal route within 1 hour, the descent was not difficult at all.
Climbed the ridge solo from the Britannia hut. Descended via normal route back to Saas-Fee.
very nice route from Britannia hutte to Allalinhorn, descent to Felskinn.
We ascended the normal route from Mittelallalin, then descended the Hohlaubgrat to the Brittaniahütte. With Mark and his son Keith.
2nd ascent of Allalinhorn for me following solo ascent via normal route almost exactly 5 years before. This time with my son Keith and rgg we ascended via normal route and descended Hohlaubgrat to Britania Hut. A really fine day out in excellent conditions.
Great day! A sudden snowfall in the upper section.
training for higher goals: Hohlaubgrat, summit and back down to Saas Almagell, a long day.
Very nice ridge and quite easy...made me hungry for something more in this area..till next year..:(
...with a bit if rock climbing at the top :)
climbed with Pete
Climbed with Sebastian and Frank. Nice route with great views.
...in rather bad snow conditions. Descended by the same route.
climbed in in one day fros Felskinn back to metro alpine
Climbed with Dave, his first 4000er. Much more gratifying than the camel train climbing from the otherside. Perfect summit views all the way to Mont Blanc!
Very nice route
Straightforward route; but nowadays the crevases might give difficulties to reach the crest.
