Monch SW Ridge  Sucess!

A great ridge for mountain fans who don't really aspire to be hard rock men. Nobody on it until we met two guys descending from summit at the point the summit snow slope begins.
Great concentration needed on the narrow summit ridge which starts the descent down the SE Ridge, again devoid of other climbers that afternoon. Climbed with Richard Pratt and Swiss Guide, Yvan Bender. Recommended.

Too early  Sucess!

we camped at the foot of the SE ridge and were too keen to start early. So we reached the summit in darkness and before the mist had cleared properly. I'd love to climb it again.

Route Climbed: Lauper Route (North face)  Sucess!

Impressive.
Conditions were suboptimal, little snow, barely solidified, took us long time. Though an amazing climb.

SE ridge (Solo)  Sucess!

I took the first train up from Grindelwald and started at 9am. The ridge was pretty narrow, but the weather was great without wind- not good for paragliding ;) This was the best weather I ever had during my four trips to the Jungfraujoch!

I ran back to the train and made the 1pm train back down.

Route Climbed: SW Ridge up - SE Ridge down Date Climbed: august 2009  Sucess!

The Mönch is a beautiful but crowded summit, so we searched a way to climb it in peace. That way is the SW Ridge. Started at the Mönchsjochhütte together with the mass of climbers heading for the Jungfrau. Reached the base of the climb by first light, climbed a snow couloir and immediately had to deal with the crux pitch, some delicate moves on a compact plate. Also the following pitch is rather demanding. After this it becomes really enjoyable and climbing simultaneously we made for a good time. Finally arrived at the summit around rush hour and unbelievably had the summit for ourselves. Easy descent along the SE Ridge.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

Enjoyable and suprisingly quick climb; summited before the very early morning cloud had cleared properly

Route Climbed: Normal traverse from Hut to Train Station  Sucess!

After the Eiger, the day before, we thought the Mönch will be an easy hike. Well Nico and my brother Gabriel and Jean-Philippe and I had a real good time and thrilling sensations in the narrow snow ridge. Also the descent towards the Jungfraujoch and train was as well demanding. Beautiful mountain and traverse...

Normal Route  Sucess!

A very nice snow route, followed by a short but quite narrow little ridge leading to the summit. I assume the view would have been gorgeous if it was not for the massive cloud that arrived just as we summitted and promptly disappeared as we descended. Well, can't always have it all I guess!

winter attempt

i started the route from kleine scheidegg, after getting the train to arrive there. i went with my dad. we arrived there around 10 in the morning, by the time i started walking it was already snowing but the weather were still somehow clear.
as we were in the south east ridge the weather turned really fast into dense fog and snow fell faster too. after some minutes climbing we decided to go back. even though we had gps, but as i was with my dad i guess it was the right to do.

Route Climbed: SW-ridge  Sucess!

Climbed this route together with David_Holland. A very nice route, but the hard conditions made it a hard and cold day! Beautifull summit. More pictures on my website:

SE Ridge  Sucess!

Way fun, but I have to say that the last 10 minutes to the top takes a lot of trust, guts (and stupidity :-) ) to do that ridge unprotected. It was a great day, and had a great time with Sergio. Because my wife and kids were on the last train down, I sprinted to the train and caught the train just prior to departure - the gates were locked but I got the workers to let me on.

My First 4000+

Going just out of season we used the winter section of the hut as a base, very warm and comfortable. Left early with clear skies to do the SW Ridge, an enjoyable scramble and then onto the snow ridges to the top. Well worth the effort for the views over looking the Jungfrau, Eiger and glaciers etc.
