Nice rock climbing near Saas Fee. My sons Christoph and Alexander joined me in this very pleasant outing. Our guide Tomi [from Zermatt] showed us the normal way, starting from the tram station Kreuzboden. Good rock-climbing practice site before going to more challenging terrain (Riffelhorn, Hoernli Ridge).
nice tour to Jegihorn 3206m
my picture are here: Link to Jegihorn 3206m
Nearly got wiped out by a huge falling rock on via ferrata just after the wire bridge - no warning shouts!!! Normal route back down
The via ferrata Jägihorn is really great! Airy and ambitious - but great!
2 years ago I made the via ferrata with some friends.
This year I came back with my wife because it is really a great tour!
Both times successful!
In preparation for the Weismies. Nice view over the Mischabel group. On the summit with mom, dad and my brother.
on the arrival day at Weissmies hut in the late afternoon we climbed Jaegihorn. Nice evening colors on Weissmies.
2005: Scrambled up the Jägihorn the day after we completed the Fletschhorn - Lagginhorn Traverse. This is the best viewpoint ever to this route. And then the weather was fine too.
2006: Climbed the route Alpendurst through the South Face. 14 pitches, about 320m in III and IV with one passage of V. Very well equiped.
2009: Climbed the route Panorama through the South Face. 10 pitches, about 400m with several passages of VI-. Very well equiped, although considerably less than his neighbour Alpendurst.
2010: Climbed the Südkante on the left side of the South Face. A couple of moves of V+ on the Grand Gendarme. Enough equipment in place.
This was our first day out in the Saas peaks, quite a steep and rough hike with great views from the summit.
After a few days of bad weather, this was just great. The view wasn't what it could have been, but the fresh powder made this trip a pleasant one. It's nice to climb a fairly easy summit, and still get the feeling you're on one of the big ones, just because of the conditions. A very cold wind coming from the north, blowing powder in the hood of your coat.... Always taking gloves with me, even on the small trips, finally paid off.
Nice and easy hike up the south flank and the west ridge. Great views!
