/ Dom Hut, Weisshorn Hut and Tasch Hut to Fluhalp
Thanks in advance
The Weisshorn hut is a good day out, similar in length (1500m?) to the dom hut approach but path all the way. this is likely to be the quietest of almost all the hut approaches in the valley.
It's about 10 years since I did the Dom, but I don't even remember any ropes or ladders on the first day to the hut, thought it was just a long slog up ( about 1600m from valley I think ). I could well be wrong though !
Go for it !
Have a look at this from today: http://www.camptocamp.org/outings/440182/fr/dom-des-mischabel-voie-normale-sans-assistance Carrying skis up to 3150m too. Fit bastards.
On the Dom hut approach there are some stretches with short ladders and/or steel hand lines, but it is no VF. PM me and I can send you a couple of pictures (no idea how to embed them here).
It is a long but easy hike up through the larch forest with fantastic views across the valley to Weisshorn. You can see the entire east flank rising uninterrupted from Randa to the summit, something like 3300m in one go.
If you go up the path to Domhütte and decide that the rock step is too much, you can always turn left just below the rock band and go to Europahütte. There is a easy footpath from the Domhütte approach, and you will get almost the same views as from a bit further above.
