Normal from Bordier via Ulrichshorn  Sucess!

From Bordier hut via a freshly snowed, quite crevassed Ried glacier. Therefore we traversed Ulrichshorn (big bergshrund and steep West face of Windjoch...) and found even gaps and holes on the northern shoulder of Ulrichshorn.
Windjoch deserved its name.

Ascent from Mischabel hut some 20+ years ago was much strighter!

Windjoch  Sucess!

In the company of my son Christoph and Nils, a local guide. We had perfect weather conditions (sunny, solid snow in early AM despite the prevalent heat wave during our stay in Saas Fee); yet we met only one person at the hut and on the entire climb!

The worst part of the great experience was the interminable descent to the valley in the midst of the record heat!

Normal route  Sucess!

Very nice climb, approach to the hut is rather long. Bit the climb itself was short and easy, with few other parties. Luckily the weather remained good until we headed back down again. Lenspitze north face looked awesome, one day...

Windgrat  Sucess!

Very nice climbing through normal route. As the first group summiting that day, we had the opportunity to have the top (too narrow!) for ourselves, avoiding any queues, and what's more - the sunrise met us sticking around to the summit cross! Beautiful, at all.
Climbed with Igi, brade and Matti.

Normal route  Sucess!

Nice route, temperatures too high though, so fast descent reaching the hut back at 10.30. North face of Lenzspitze looks terrible...

Normal route from the Mischabel hut  Sucess!

Lots of fresh snow, had to spur. The rocks below the summit were very icy, climbed along the steep firn/ice to the right of them. Afterwards continued to Stecknadelhorn by traversing a steep slope.
