great 2-day-climb: with bike to Wiesbadner Hütte, via Wiesbadner Grätle to the summit normal route back. danger of rockfall on the ridge, only recommendable if not many people go.
On a day trip from the Wiesbadener Hütte.
Climbed the Piz Buin in a day from the Bieler Hoehe. Took the Ochsentaler glacier route which was heavily crevassed but never really dangerous.
Climbed as an instructor of an alpine course
ODA 012 made it to the summit and skied down. I took a bad fall in some wet snow and tore some ligaments in my knee. No surgery. Beautiful peak and great hutte at the bottom. We drank some beer in the snow cave bar.
Part of a learning week with a guide. Nice mountain and not too hard.
With Karl Gunnar, Jan
As part of traverse from Silvretta hut to Tuoi hut
Part of our C1, mountaineering course 2009.
after a coldfront and snowfall in the night - we were alone on the summit at such a perfect day - everybody waitet for the first ... to do the new glacier track - we did it.
Climbed with Christian. Ice in the gully on the summit ridge made me glad I brought crampons. Amazing view!
After foggy morning clouds disappeared and we had lovely day until we reached summit. Then weather changed again.
Beautiful skitour to Piz Buin 3312m
The pictures are here: Link to Piz Buin 3312m
On the first day from Wiesbadener Hut via Dreiländerspitze to Tuoi Hut, and on the second day from Tuoi hut via Fuorcla dal Cunfin and Buinlücke to Piz Buin and back to Wiesbadener Hut. My first two 3000's :o) With a mountain guide in absolut perfect conditions, it was a great experience which I will remember very long.
But I must admit that Dreiländerspitze was the more impressive summit since it was not so overcrowded ...
Did the normal route together with Sebastian from Wiesbadener Hütte.
Nice ski mountaineering. Nice mixed climbing from ski-depot to the top.
Good conditions, although it was a little foggy on the top.
Nice trip with SP-Member Nikman, but the summit was in clouds. The chimney was icy and snowy but okay.
After snowshoeing up from Partenen (1051m) to the Wiesbadener Hut (2443m) on the 1st day, we (Christoph and I) ascended Dreiländerspitze (3197m) one day later from where we returned to the hut. On the 3rd day we summited Piz Buin (3312m) using the crampons for the final 200m and the rope for one icy part. On the 4th day we hiked down to the valley again. It was my first snowshoe tour in such altitude and it was interesting to observe that you can ascend faster by snowshoe than by ski. These were great days with outstanding weather and my 5th and 6th 3000er.
Excellent snow conditions on the direct ascent to the 'Buin-Luecke' (will deteriorate soon).
1 hour alone (people from austrian side arrive later) on the summit with no wind and perfect view. A very good start for the summer season.
You can easily make the ascent on Piz Buin in one day from Bielerhoehe. With my Jasmina, we did a part of the valley towards Wiesbadnerhuette with bikes. It makes your return a bit faster. As we didn't know for the Wiesbadnergraetle route, we went over the Ochsentaler glacier. This is longer, but also beautiful. The top scrambling was not hard, but could be if slopes were icy.
Ascent via Vermunt glacier and Wiesbadener Grätle. We evaded the chimney on the left side - there was a bit ice but going up was easy. On the summit were about 40 climbers and even 2 dogs!
On the descent there was a real traffic jam at the chimney - evading it was too dangerous because of the ice. So all the climbers going down had to use it and most of the climbers going up wanted to use it! 3 or 4 ropes were hanging in the chimney and we had to wait about 30 min! Further down we met the often described "climbers" in shorts and sneakers! On the descent we went over the Ochsentaler glacier to Wiesbadener Hütte.
Was my first 3000 m summit. First time on a rope. First time with a guide. The latter was at least 60 years older than me. So was the rope. But maybe that's not quite correct. I was a child then.
PS: Have skied Piz Buin later years also since the 'Wiesbadener Huette' belongs to the section of the German Alpine Club I was member of then.
