/ Jungfrau on skis
If anyone has any experiences I'd be interested to hear.
Pretty straightforward if you do as you say and do the short steep bit to Rottalsattel on foot. Did it one May on 3-pin gear and we didn't find the skiing scary or hard. Final slope to summit is steepish (maybe 40 deg?) and quite exposed, also icy in places when we did it, but there are (or at least were) stanchions to belay on if you're not confident doing it unroped. Hope this helps.
Did it from Rottalsattel on foot. A party of 3 skied from summit but it's pretty steep. I believe they've had a major dump of snow there. Ticino was all grade 3 today. Not sure about further N around Jungfrau. We used the stanchions but I'd say you'll find it pretty snowy.
PS. What's 3-pin gear??
Nordic skis and bindings, leather boots
Thanks, decided not to go this weekend due to high winds but hopefully will have an opportunity to do it in another week or two.
