HarryBD 3 Aug - Absolutely incredible, 4:45am start from Britannia Hut and got to see the sun rise over the Weissmies and its ridge. Beautiful route on an aesthetic ridge. Rock step is tame but took some concentration climbing in crampons because I'm a punter. 360deg views from the summit will take some beating. summit at 8:30am. Felt a world apart physically from the Weissmies earlier in the trip. Must be something to do with acclimatisation...

Caused some confusion as platform can only be accessed on descending train, but before ascending you must sign a disclaimer in the station. We thus went up, down (to sign), back up and down (to access station). Total punters. Reached ridge with hut parties ahead of us but still summited in 2.5hrs from station. Led one rock pitch at 4000m but this is bolted and about VDiff - got a bit out of breath though!

Jumping crevasses in the dark on a dry glacier to start, then an increasingly aesthetic snow ridge (some patches of ice), enjoyable climbing on the rock step (the bolts are good, the stanchions hilariously wobbly), and a cracking view from the top before the hordes arrived from the Metro Alpin. 4 hours ish up, a 1.5 down to the train station. Massive crevasses and seracs on the descent, easy but not what I'd call safe. Don't hang around.

Thomas Korrison 6 Aug, 2016 - Only my second Alpine route, took much longer than expected. Started from the half-way station of Metro Alpin, with a straightforward walk across the glacier to a relatively short but steep snow plod up to the rock "step". First time climbing in crampons, so was thrown off, dealing with the cold, exposure and altitude. Liz lead both pitches, I was quite happy following.
