Day 2 of acclimatisation for Weisshorn. Up from the bivi site and down to the morain above the cable car station in 4.5hrs. Some big serac fall on the way and some very sizeable crevasses. Cold and cloudy on the summit.

6:30 on route, slow up, quick down due to poor conditions and no snow... Avoided the weather just!

Used in descent, many crevasses and very dangerous in the midday sun. An early ascent/descent is recommended. Pretty route though

Very enjoyable even without much of a view, atmospheric clouds masking the huge drop down the east face. Summit ridge takes longer than expected.

Very little track and fresh snow made this seem a pretty committing way down. Seracs were carving too as we got to Hohsaas.

Mike_Bottom 06/Sep/14 -

First Alpine Route... First lift to Hohsaas at 7:45. Well worn track all the way, fair few crevasses to cross on the glacier. ascent easy enough, steep snow slope all the way. 3 hours up, 1.5 down (guidebook time) A little daunting walking through the ice debris at the bottom of the NW flank. Seracs look quite unstable, we saw a reasoanble sized collapse from the west face.

SteveCarratt 31/Aug/14 -
caradoc 22/Aug/14 -

8.30am start, 12.30pm finish. The route was much more worrying than my previous ascent in 2008. The seracs looked far more unstable, more crevasses, avalanche debris, could be an accident waiting to happen.

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.
