Route Climbed: Traverse W - E Date Climbed: july 2019  Sucess!

After failed attempts due to bad weather in 2014 and 2015, we found perfect weather and conditions in 2019.

Smooth climb to the western summit (a bit of ice which could be bypassed in the rocks), a quick traverse to the eastern summit and a descent to the Lysjoch in perfect conditions. A real joy to climb like that!

Lyskamm Sella ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful route to the summit of the Lyskamm east.
Very exposed and steep ridge in mixed terrain.
The view to the other summits of the Monte Rosa is spectaculair.

Cresta Sella  Sucess!

Climbed steep snow/neve/ice up El Nasso then climbed the Cresta Sella. Passed an Italian guide with an older client who was shaking from fatigue. Descended the east ridge to the Marguerita Hut. Saw a chopper swoop in and rescue the Italians off the ridge.

Traverse  Sucess!

Did the East-West traverse of Lyskamm from Gnifetti hut to Ayas hut. What a beautifull mountain! The route was in a very good condition with a lot of snow and good tracks. Weather was nice, in the beginning some clouds and a very strong wind but when we reached the East summit the sky was clear.

East Ridge to EAST LYSKAMM  Sucess!

From Rif. Gnifetti we started around 06.20 hrs. The weather and snow conditions were perfect! We reached the summit at around 11.30 hrs where we enjoyed the panorama views on all sides! We descended same way down, but a lot quicker. Great route & great mountain!

Lyskamm West  Sucess!

Solo ascent after traversing Castor from Rossi and Volante bivouac hut. The slope was icy and covered by fresh snow higher up. Getting to the summit ridge was a bit tricky. Great climb in solitude!

Traverse  Sucess!

Probably the best day I've ever had in the Alps. Perfect weather on a fantastic needle-sharp ridge between the 2 summits. From the east summit we looked down to the Monte Rosa sattelite peaks all of which we climbed that same day.

Lyskamm Traverse  Sucess!

Began at the Klein Matterhorn station and went up and over Castor. Continued to Lyskamm West and traversed to Lyskamm East. The 5km long knife edge snow ridge was wild and beautiful and required much concentration. Rapped over a serac to reach the Grenz Glacier and hiked out to the Gornergrat. Exhausting but incredible!

Lyskamm Traverse  Sucess!

Started out from Rifugio Quintino Sella and after reaching the first fantastic summit, continued on the narrow (and never ending!)ridge to the second summit and then down to Rifugio Gnifetti. The whole route was very exposed, at times, just wide enough for one foot..not much time to look around at what I assume must have been just gorgeous scenery! An absolutely amazing climb, loved every second of it!!
