perfect conditions  Sucess!

Fast solo climb from the Weissmies Hütte. West ridge all the way up (2:45). West ridge + Lagginhorn glacier (no crevasses) down (2:15). Perfect conditions, clear skies, not that much wind, hardly any ice near the summit (crampons not used). Views were great. Easiest 4.000'er I have climbed after Breithorn. Monster-trotti down from Kreuzboden :)

West Ridge  Sucess!

Route: Weissmieshutten - West Ridge - Lagginhorn - West Ridge, Kreuzboden

Great day. Easy, but nice climbing on the West Ridge. After the rocks over the (steeper) snowflank to the summit. I found this last part more difficult compared to other PD graded 3- and 4000ers.

WSW ridge, solo  Sucess!

The last climb of the summer. Easy ridge climb can be delicate under icy conditions.

North-west rigde  Sucess!

Via the Fletchhorn we climbed the North-West rigde of the Lagginhorn. Conditions were super! nice sunny weather and the snow was froozen so easy walking and great climbing on the ridge.

A pleasant climb and great scenery  Sucess!

Climbed with Mark again. Almost all other parties had already left the hut by the time we got going, some to the Weissmiess, others to the Lagginhorn. The only other twosome that left after us passed us quickly. Since the weather was fine, we were in no hurry today. The route turned out to be easier than we had expected, and despite the bit of snow on the ridge we never felt the need to rope up.

We passed many parties again on the descent. Some seemed to have spent their energy on the way up, others appeared to be a bit unsure on the snow covered ridge.

As it was, we had no problem getting back to Hohsaas in time to catch the cable car back to the valley. It had been a fine climb.

Beautiful day out  Sucess!

3rd climb with rgg (from Hohsaas) and a great day out - just slightly marred by extortionate prices in swiss mountain hut (nightly rate nearly double Italien & French rates thus far - and 8 euro for a liter of water - ???!!!).
But the mountain was great - with superb mixed climbing/scrambling above the slightly laborious lower part - and what a great little summit! Enjoyed looking across at Weissmies, which I climbed 3 years ago.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Huffed and puffed but no technical difficulties. Cramponed the last 100m due to snowfield. Lovely view from the top. Maybe Wiessmess next year

Nice climb  Sucess!

The normal route was a very enjoyable climb with nice rock scrambling along the ridge.

Enjoyable rock climbing (South Ridge)  Sucess!

Great day climb! Started at 8:15 AM after gondola rides from Saas Grund, in the company of my sons Christoph & Alexander and our Zermatt guides. The rather long rock climbing included easy scrambling from the pass and more airy pitches closer to the summit.

Overall a very enjoyable climb if one excludes the VERY LONG normal route descent over snow and interminable rocky paths leading back to the Hohsaas hut (situated next to the gondola). We completed the descent just a few days after the tragic accident which took the lives of 5 climbers who fell after slipping on the upper snow fields.

Normal  Sucess!

Climbed this mountain one day after the terrible accident that killed 5 German climbers. The whole second half of the ridge is still in snow. Despite being noted as an 'easy' 4000er and the quotation of PD, I found the hard snow and steepness of the ridge not to be underestimated. Nice views.

Route Climbed: normal route  Sucess!

My climbing partner made a solo tour over Sengchuppa/Fletschorn and north rigde to Laginhorn. As a surprise I raced from Hohsaas to the summit. To bad he reached the summit before me...

WSW ridge solo  Sucess!

My first 4000er! Great weather that day. Climbed along the west ridge avoiding the glacier. Fantastic view from the top, but I could not enjoy for a long time. I was among the first 5 people on the summit and I had to leave soon to avoid the traffic jam that would have obviously followed. All my way down I heard the word "stein" (stone) and I was happy to be far away. Descending I took the route over the almost harmless glacier. The way down to Saas Grund is very long and is not only descent but also mild ascent. But the beer in Camping Mischabel and the company of a nice couple from Catalonia that evening was very nice. Perfect conditions and perfect day!
