Insanely dry UIAA II
Nice traverse. First part mostly rock, descent snow and ice.
Ended at Hohsaas for the night.
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.
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!
Climbed it solo in 1 day up & down from Saas Grund in the valley. SE-ridge up, normal route down. #nonstopsolo
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 Åsa we climbed the NW-flank from the Weissmies hut. Very good conditions.
Very nice conditions. Be quick through a couple of parts of the glacier.
Great weather. Beautiful views. Pleasant climbing.
From Weissmies Hut, nice climb in bright weather. Besides the summit view and the route, the sunrise 'on' the Mischabel group was beautiful.
Enjoed the route - the Serac barrier may well, I think, get more tricky over time.
Up from Hohsaas Hut and then descended the SSE ridge to Amageller Hut w/ Scott. About 3hrs up and 4 down.
Great North - South crossing from Weissmies Hut to Almageller Hut
Great weather beautiful panorama. I climbed with Sene.
Start from Hochsaas cable car: 8:30 am.
On the top at 12:10 pm. We spent about half an hour on the summit.
We were at the Hochsaas cable car /3142m/ about 3 pm.
Relaxed climb in good conditions. Normal route.
Weissmies from Almageller hut was my first Alpine climb. We climbed it again the following year from Hohsaas.
We started from Hochsaas cable car.The first one goes very late at 8 am,so we had to hurry.
The weather was perfect.
I climbed with Blaze334, who taken this video shot:
Route: Almageller Huette -Zwischerbergpass - SSE-ridge - Weissmies - Trift glacier (Normal Route) - Weissmieshutten
Great route, especially the SSE ridge. Summit views all the way to Ticino and Italy.
Left Almageller hut around 4:30 AM, warm weather, no wind. Wore crampons for first part of the climb, removed for scramble, came down on the glacier to gondola around 10. A great climb.
Traversed the whole mountain in 4 hours from Almageller hytte. A fun varied route.
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.
