Descent via the West-South-West Ridge (Normal Route).

Finally completed it after looking at it many times. Easy climbing, but long and sustained. Fresh snow and ice added to the excitement.

Very easy (and very enjoyable!) scrambling till the junction with the WSW spur. Then more technical as it nears the summit.

Excellent fun sustained climbing/scrambing all the way from the Lagginjoch on generally solid rock. Recommended! Missed the last cable car, so had to walk back to Saas Grund: Bugger.

Soloed after partners got ill - magnificent climb. Descent requires care - I turned off left into the rocky area very low to avoid rockfall risk, but should have turned higher to meet the glacier, although here there would have been more rockfall risk

Ascended the ridge as far as p.3906 and then descended the South West Spur as weather was closing in and the rock was plastered in ice.

Nice route, abit loose in places but generally sound. Done in 4 and a half hours from the Hohsaas after getting the first lift up - summitted about 1pm. Required 1 abseil that could have been avoided.
