Went light and fast, early cable car up, doned crampons and axes once on the glacier, legged it up and down in no time at all. Smash and grab raid!
Gave it a shot with Robin, Beni and Geraldine- I don't recall details of why we didn't make it. fun weekend though and Jagihorn was enjoyable.
from Hohsaas to Almagellar. MIst and snow on the descent.
4000 - peak, climbed from Almagellerhütte.
Just us at the summit !!! .More Pictures of the Weissmies ascent
Started at Almageller Hut at 5:30, summit at 9:30, descent to Weissmies Hut.
bivvied outside the Weissmies hut during heavy rain and thunder and lightening. weather improved in the morning but on the summit we had a complete white out
6:30 at the glacier by Hoosaas and 8:30 at the top!! We overtook almost everyone!! Perfect weather conditions and not too much wind at the summit.
Climbed again on the 22/7/2011 with three companions. Excellent weather in a week with very bad weather. A lot of fresh snow, but just right.
Once again on the top over the SSE ridge, 29/7/2011, after a night snowing. We did the whole ridge all the way from the Zwischbergenjoch!! (not over the SE slopes and then, higher up, the ridge). Amazing route. Descend over the normal west slopes.
Normalroute from Hohsaas
Leading an alpine club youth group (JDAV).
Coming from Almageller Hut, descent to Weissmies Hut. The SSE ridge is a great climb, not that long. Easy descent via WNW flank, though often tricky crevasses.
Easy but really enjoyable climb. Descended part of the south east ridge to have break time away from the crowds on the summit and then back by the normal route. The ridge looked like a much nicer way to go down but then getting back to Saas-Fee in time for a Potato Rosti lunch would have been tougher.
Started the day with rain, finished it with beautiful weather:D
We started at 10am only but where back for coffee in time. We were quite alone on the mountain. Late start was ok since the sun did not come through enough to weaken the snow.
Together with my climbingpartner we guided three friends to the summit. Beautifull day!

Wonderful traverse. Start at 04.25 at Almalgeller-Hut. Climbing over nice SE Ridge and descent the NW face. Very windy at the summit.
Very good weather. A perfect day and climb with Attilio
Very cold! Nice easy climb.
Nice Tour to Weissmies 4017 m.

Very much snow on the route! A bit cloudy, but it was the best weather in days! Not a very crowded route.
