TOPIC: Nadegrat

Nadegrat 26/08/2011 14:22 #979

Climbed the 25-08-2011 the Nadelhorn, Stecknadelhorn and Hohberghorn from Mischabelhütte.

The glacier to Windjoch is still in fair condition ... there are 3 just open crevasses that can be easily passed and a little 'ice on a slope. But we must return to a decent time because the snow is already in the early morning spring.

The crest of Nadelhorn is OK.

The ridge (of snow) from Nadelhorn towards Stecknadelhorn is sharp and soft snow (no carrier). neat rocky part.

The channel for the Dirrenhorn is in very poor condition, with little snow and dangerous discharges.

If you persist the heat of these days is to be considered at risk the snowy part of the crossing.

I suggest, however speed and a good starting now.

Good mountain.

A clarification: I wrote "part neat rocky"Actually it was not clean because in the night there was a storm (it was raining at the refuge) that has whitened the tops, but I have written like this, because there is old snow, nor ice. The heat should have melted the snow already in the afternoon.

In the two photos the rocky part with night sprinkling
