Climbed the Nadelgrat solo from the Mischabel hut.
Third peak of my solo traverse on Nadelgrat
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.
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.
Wanted to climb the Nadelgrat, but after seeing the stones flying around the dürrenjoch. We reached the summit via normalroute coming from SE ridge Nadelgrat
Stecknadelhorn as part of the Nadelgrat Traverse from the Hohbärghorn to the Nadelhorn
Climbed by traversing a steep slope below the summit of Nadelhorn. Lots of fresh snow made the traverse quite slow and tricky (no spur).
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.
Some tricky downclimbing just below the summit in the direction of the hohberghorn!
Nadelgrat traverse from Durrenhorn to Nadelhorn.
Elegant rocky ridge, all to be climbed on the right side.....

climbed late in the day in perfect conditions before bivi below Nadelgrat
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.
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.
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.
