Traverse from Almageller hut towards Hohsaas hut  Sucess!

Nice traverse. First part mostly rock, descent snow and ice.

Ended at Hohsaas for the night.

Weissmies in the mist  Sucess!

We started from Hohsaas around 8.30 in the morning (late but the cable car didn't start earlier). During the entire climb the sky was clouded and often visibility was very poor. We could only see the top when we were actually on it. Besides the rather poor weather with no summitviews whatsoever, the climb itself was great. Technically not difficult at all, but very impressive to climb between the crevasses and seracs of the Triftgletscher on the lower part of the climb. Due to the rather warm weather (on the descent) the snow was heavy which made progress a lot slower. 5 hours to the summit and back again.

Fun climb - a bit of everything!  Sucess!

Hiked up the valley and stayed at the Almagellerhutte. The hut had only been opened about a week and it was quiet, clean and very enjoyable. Early morning start - we climbed up from the hut and then traversed down the other side - a few big seracs and cracks to negotiate through. Beautiful day!

3rd time: with a view!  Sucess!

After two solo climbs with complete whiteout at the summit, I was finally lucky and could enjoy the nice views this summer. Together with my girlfriend ├ůsa we climbed the NW-flank from the Weissmies hut. Very good conditions.

My first 4000m peak  Sucess!

From Weissmies Hut, nice climb in bright weather. Besides the summit view and the route, the sunrise 'on' the Mischabel group was beautiful.

From the Weissmies hut  Sucess!

Enjoed the route - the Serac barrier may well, I think, get more tricky over time.

Summited via the south ridge from the Almageller Hut. Lots of snow on the southeast face and mixed scrambling on the south ridge. Took off crampons for the ridge and put them back on for the summit. Great weather and great snow conditions.
