The 17th. of August was a fantasic day, with brillant sky, but for the next day, bad weather after noon was promissed from the swiss weather forecast. So my fantastic swiss mountain guide GABRIEL VOIDE from SAAS-FEE and I decided to try the Täschhorn already on the first day.
So that became a very long day for us!
We started from Mittelallalin station at 7.30, went over Feejoch and Feekopf to Alphubeljoch and reached summit of Alphubel at 10o`clock. We took some minutes on the summit but after that, climbing down on Alphubel S-O ridge was acted and we reached Mischabeljoch at 11.15.
After a short brake and snack we started on the S-O ridge and reached summit of Täschhorn at 15.15 in fantastic weather and wind conditions. There was quite much snow on the rigde but my perfect guide GABRIEL VOIDE made it possible. The way back to Mischabeljoch took another 3,5h so we descended in biwak at 18.30. It was a perfect day and next day we climbed up to Alphubel again and went to Längfluh station and than back to Saas-Fee by cable car. At 16.00 it started to rain in Saas-Fee so we had done everything correct in our plan.
