a strange day  Sucess!

A strange day. The clouds were kissing just the top of mountains over 3800 meters and there ws a very nice view allaround to the Vallis and Oberland.
It was cold, and the snow was very hard but covered by 5 cm f poweder, very slippery. We had to use the rampants for the all way up and over 2600m there was not clear path.
about 50 meters above the breithornpass we should take off the ski and then wear crampons: NO SNOW AT ALL, just wonderfull glassy ice!
Too much morrain epxosed witout snow on the alpjengletscher: we got to load the skies over our shoulders twice again.
The final ridge it is easy but a bit exposed.
Unfortunalty when we belonged the final part, the fog wrapped us!

Long, intensive but nice

Route Climbed: normal summer route from Simplon Pass Date Climbed: July 30th 2004  Sucess!

a very nice and almost lonely trip through a superb landscape. But it is a very long walk and the final ridge may be easier in winter time when covered with snow
