Route Climbed: south east ridge Date Climbed: 12 july 2001  Sucess!

Started in the morning in complete fog but just before we reached the zwischenbergenpass the clouds disappeared and we had a great view to monte rose, alphubel dom (photo). Nice climb on easy rock's to reach over a small crest to the summit, down to hohsaas and saas grund.

Route Climbed: Traverse via SSE Ridge to NW Flank / North Ridge / Traverse via North Ridge to SSE Ridge Date Climbed: august 2003 / july 2006 / august 2009  Sucess!

2003: Nice climb in rather bad conditions, but not that difficult and with an amazing sunrise. Great beginning of our vacation.

2006: Made an attempt on the North Ridge. Reached the Lagginjoch around 6 o'clock and then decided to turn back because weather didn't look nice at all and, I must admit, the view on the ridge up there is rather frightening...

2009: After 3 years I was back for a second attempt on the North Ridge. The weather was good and I was mentally ready for the climb. Without any problems we reached the summit after 6 hours of climbing on a splendid ridge. Not willing to search our way between the hordes of people and the crevasses on the NW Flank, we descended easily and alone via the SSE Ridge to the Almagellerhütte.

Route Climbed: various Date Climbed: 1991 - 2004  Sucess!

August 6th 1991 - normal route from Weissmies hut:

The glacier had quite good conditions. It was a beautiful day, so calm that we could watch someone start with his parachute from the summit. But the day ended sadly as we had to watch a climber fall to death from Weisskugel north ridge.



July 28th 2004

traverse from Almageler hut to Weissmies hut.

Beautiful day. From Zwischenbergen pass we stayed on the rocky ridge though following the snow fields on the east side might be shorter. Climbing was amusing and not difficult. Descent on the glacier to Hohsass had still good conditions.

Route Climbed: SSE-ridge ascent, descending NW-route Date Climbed: August 12 2003  Sucess!

Great weather, nice route, what could you want more? Plus a "playground" in the mid-section of the NW-face: for a breef moment we could really feel like the guys in the Khumbu. But it has to be said: this is not normal!! When are people going to realize we are really ruining our planet with our industries etc. (Start rating Kyoto-protocol, ALL OF U!)

Route Climbed: Travers of the Weissmies Date Climbed: 20 Aug 2003  Sucess!

We started from the Almagellerhut and climbed solo over the SSE-ridge and went down over the NW-flank of the mountain. It was great to start our vacation with in Wallis this year. Nice views over the Monta rosa area !

Route Climbed: Normal route from Hohsaas Date Climbed: August 13th, 2003  Sucess!

Thanks to the abnormal glacierconditions it was a very exciting ascent. We had to cross ladders, boards and everything else you can imagine on a glacier, this year Weissmies was a little Kumbu. Made it in one day, which was not such a good idea, going down with this temperature and those countless crevasses was really dangerous!

On the top in three hours from Hohsaas through the Triftgletscher and the icefall . On the topridge, a strong northwind decorated the corniced summit with a huge snowwreath.

Route Climbed: West Route Date Climbed: June 2001

The route snakes its way through some impressive crevasses, but it took our group too long.



It was a fun day out from the Weissmies hut with Beni, Geraldine and Robin, but we were too late in getting to the final shrund at 3800m. It was also impressively wide, nobody had passed up it but a couple had jumped over it from above. I was impressed.



The Jagihorn offers a fun Kletterstieg reachable from the hut in one hour. Almost like the Dolomites!



Oh well.
