Bah visibility  Sucess!

We climbed the mountain from the hut in little over 4 hours, and back down in about two and a half hours. We had poor visibility, and due to recent snowfall the track vanished little above the glacier. Our guide was familiar enough with the mountain to find the route anyway.

Traverse  Sucess!

Nice climb from Almagellar Huette to Hohsaas. Especially the scrambling up allong the ridge is beautiful. Down to Hohsaas its a nice glacier with some nice views into crevasses.

Normal route from Hohsaas  Sucess!

Easy and not too long morning snow climb, amidst spectacular seracs and crevasses (in the lower portions of the route). Climbed in the company of my son Alexander and Turbo, our Zermatt guide.

Turbo's mountain experiences made all the difference for us when, unexpectedly, huge blocs of ice broke off from cornices 500 metres high above us and started an ice avalanche which plummeted down the main chute. Turbo had guided us preventively on a side path so as to avoid any potential icefall. Thus, we only had to duck a few of the deadly ice blocks which came our way at high speeds. Fortunately nobody else on the trail was hit by the ice blocks which rolled down at 6:30 AM (one of the ice blocks was as big as a car). We were back from the summit at 11AM (at the Hohsaas hut) .

We did the route in perfect weather. No wind at all! There was no snow on the rocky SSE ridge. It's an amazing route.

SSE ridge from Almagaller Hut

Started from Almagaller hut in perfect weather, with plans to return by the same ridge because my family was in the Almagaller hut. Was nice and easy until the rocky part where we felt we should have carried some slings for a safer descent, so turned back around 3800m.

Almageller traverse  Sucess!

Traverse from the Almageller hut to the Hohsaas cablecar. Nice weather and nice climbing. Only the Trift glacier was a maze of crevasses.

normal route from Trift glacier  Sucess!

We started from Hochsaas cable car.The first one goes very late at 8 am,so we had to hurry before hot and sunny day.
We were climbing 3,5 houres.While descending we were using ice screws on the upper part of the route because of quite steep ice.Wonderful cravesses!

Normal across Trift glacier  Sucess!

Quickly. Shortly. Very nice! I thought it would've been a bit more demanding, however it was a nice starting point to go further this season. Summitted on Igi's birth day in perfect weather and snow conditions.
Climbed with Igi, brade and Matti.
