Not a route I would like to repeat. Massive objective danger. Still a nice plod and good views from the summit. Took 4 hours 15 minutes. Slightly over guidebook time. 2 hours descent.

Felt much stronger than on the Lagginhorn. Great route - quite easy from Hohsas to summit. Fantastic narrow snow ridge from summit to start of rock scrambing descent. Really enjoyed it - my kind of route! Once again, good weather, not much wind. Great views.
mountainbagger - 2nd - 14/Aug/08 with Mrs Mountainbagger, Rob, Walter

Absolute doddle of a snow plod, how can it have the same grade as Dufourspitze? Comedy grade. Tres Facile. Not much to it - fair acclimatisation though.
