Variation on the normal route, taking the ridge all the way to avoid the glacier. Plenty of loose rock so take care.

All the way up the ridge from the weissmeis hut. Last 300m was knackering due to poor acclimatisation. 5 hours up and 5 down due to tiredness.

Ascended via start of normal route, then crossing dry glacier just above the toe and scrambling up scree to join w ridge at about 3100m. Descended the full W ridge, which would be a quicker ascent route (a 6ft cairn marks the point where this route splits from the fletschhorn path) left hut 4.30am, summit 9.00am, back at hut by 12.30 with several stops

started from Hosaas. Lots of well consolidated snow at top of route, took crampons but left axe in hut and used frozen axe-shaft holes as finger holds. Returned down half of the ridge then some fun snow slopes and acroos the glacier

Did a full traverse of the Laggin Horn. Awkward absiel on the main ridge. Log jams behind groups, took 20hrs. Tiring.

Climbed and descended complete West Ridge. Set off late due to poor weather early on. Snow and ice on ridge. Cold and windy but clear.
