Route Climbed: Nadelgrat to Galenjoch Date Climbed: september 2012  Sucess!

Traversed the Nadelgrat from the Mischabelhütte to the Galenjoch. Extremely long tour!

Passage over the Stecknadelhorn is quite straightforward, it looks more exposed than it is and passes quickly. Traverse underneath the summit of Nadelhorn and the gendarm on the NW ridge over an icy slope, belaying with ice srews necessary.

Route Climbed: Nadelgrat  Sucess!

We climbed the Nadelgrat from the Bordier hut starting at the Galenjoch and traversing Dirruhorn, Hobärghorn & Stecknadelhorn. Galenjoch to Dirruhorn took half of the time of the whole ridge - much snow, no tracks. Decided to cross the Nadelhorn north face and descend without the summit due to the time. Most of the rock fragile, but not that difficult. Though an interesting climb in a spectacular ambiance, following this nice pearl necklet. In the afternoon the Ried glacier already was one single swampy minefield.

From Nadelhorn  Sucess!

Climbed by traversing a steep slope below the summit of Nadelhorn. Lots of fresh snow made the traverse quite slow and tricky (no spur).

Normal route from the Bordierhut  Sucess!

We decided not to do the full Nadelgrat traverse. So we only climbed the Stecknadelhorn and the Nadelhorn. Good snow conditions. Long ascent from the Bordierhut.

Route Climbed: Normal route following Nadelhorn  Sucess!

Tagged this peak after doing Nadelhorn. In hindsight, we could have avoided summit traffic on Nadelhorn by doing this one first. An enjoyable traverse and an easy scramble. Just concentrate well on the traverse.

Route Climbed: Nadelgrat Date Climbed: July 22 + 23, 2001  Sucess!

On the 22nd, I climbed together with my friends from Mischabelhut via Nadelhorn to Stecknadelhorn and returned to Mischabelhut.

The next day (23rd), I climbed it solo. I climbed Hohberghorn Northface and Nadel-Ridge via Stecknadelhorn and Nadelhorn back to Mischabelhut.

Route Climbed: Nadelgrat Date Climbed: August 1998  Sucess!

I came from Hohberghorn solo and was afraid how difficukt the ridge seemed to be. It wasn't at all. Nice climbing and it took only 1 hour from Hohberghorn to Windjoch.
