Thanks for posting, this is a fantastic photo! I'm thinking of climbing Weissmies next summer.
Welcome Lodewijk. I have just joined SP and am in the process of putting in some more photos. Weissmies is great - good luck with your plans for next summer!
Thanks! And: Welcome to SP Mark!
And thanks for the welcome to SP Lodewijk. Don't know why I haven't joined before.. looks like an excellent resource. But given that I am an old man of nearly 50, may take me a while to use it properly - start putting in the odd trip report for example.
On your plans for 2010: Saas Fee is a great base for easy 4000ers if that is of interest. They don't get easier than the Allalinhorn and then aside from Weissmies there is also Alphubel & Lagginhorn. Good hunting!
Hi Mark, yes SP is an excellent resource, and a very addictive one, too :-)
I spend some days in Saas Grund last year, and climbed some peaks including allalin. I will come back for sure for Weissmies and Alphubel!Cheers!
Hi again Lodewijk
Just thought I'd let you know I have just put in a trip report which includes an account of climbing Weissmies - it is entitled 'Alps 2009: Sunny Saas summits and single return to Mont Blanc'. Hope it is of interest.
A magnificent summit shot this is, Mark!
