Great conditions starting from Hohsaas. Good weather. Fast ascent with no problems.
Great views on that route especially down into Saastal 3000meters below and to Mischabel-range at the other side of the valley.

Summer 2005  Sucess!

Enjoyable day out on a lovely summer's day. Climbed ordinary route from Cable car. Temprature inversion over north Italy so only mountains visible. Climbed with Neil and my brother James who did'nt like the altitude so we had to rush down. Got strange headache when we got back down to the valley so did'nt spend the rest of the afternoon drinking beer unlike the other two!

Normal Route from Hohsaas  Sucess!

Left the hut at 5:15 in the morning and we were the second on the summit. The crowds were about half hour behind us. Get an early start and you have the mountain to yourself. Very luxurious hut compared to others I've been in. Super climb.

SSE ridge (normal route)  Sucess!

Beautiful and easy climb in a beautiful surrounding. Absolutely recommendable! And there's no glacier with crevasses on this way, a nice possiblity for more experienced climber to bring some less experienced along. Some pics at www.climbingtours.net

SSE ridge  Sucess!

Surprisingly enjoyable climb! Watched the moon set over Rimpfischhorn on the way up, brilliant views from the ridge and the summit, really worthwhile. Started extra early so we could bag Lagginhorn the same (long) day. I think gert (see below) was the only person up before us.

SSE Ridge  Sucess!

I started late in the evening at Saas Almagell, bivouaced a few hours just above the tree line and then continued to the top.
Beautiful sunrise at the Zwischenbergen pass! Nice climb! The summit was very cold and windy. Descended the same way.

Traverse: SSE - NW  Sucess!

Climbed the Weissmies starting from the Almagellerhütte and descending to Weissmieshütte. No visibility on the way up due to snow and wind so did not propably take the most convenient way up and climbed on the rocks instead. Due to same reasons there was no trail down the normal route which cost me a lot of time navigating solo through crevasses of the steeper slopes.
A beautiful mountain when I got to view it from the Lagginhorn the next day!

Photos will be added soon to http://www.samulimansikka.com

Route Climbed: SSE Traverse Date Climbed: 25th July 2005  Sucess!

This was a cracking route and part of our acclimatising for the Matterhorn later in the week.



Two other teams on the route, stunning alpine setting. Met the masses coming up from Hohass on the the long glacier route from the north. The SSE ridge is far more enjoyable and interesteing , although no more technically difficult that the N.



Had snow, ice and rock - so perfect day out for me.
