Lagginhorn Summit Ridge (Winter)
Lagginhorn summit view. Photo taken during my winter solo ascent of Lagginhorn West Ridge - Normal Route PD, II. The upper part of the route was dangerous because of hard water ice and snow covered slabs. On the lower part I was forced to do some traverses in fresh and soft snow.
In the foreground: Fletschorn- third highest peak in Weissmies Group.
Bernese Alps in the background- from left to right: Bietshorn, Breithorn,
Mittaghorn, Aletschorn and Jungfrau with Monch and Eiger, Gross
Fiescherhorn, Gross Grunhorn, Schreckhorn and Finsteraahorn.
