Description

The Allalinhorn is a popular peak among climbers, in part because it is one of the famous “82 4000ers” in the Alps. Still, it is fairly accessible. Actually, Allalinhorn is considered the “easiest” 4,000 meter peak in the Alps. Yet, as all Alpine climbs, it has several challenges to overcome. Join me this season as we aim for the summit!

This peak is usually one of the first 82 “4000ers” climbers go on in the Alps, together with Breithorn. Located close to the Saas Fee ski resort, its presence is impressive.

To begin our Normal Route ascent, on the North side, we will start off at the Mittelallalin top station of the Saas Fee ski facilities (3,450 m). This point is easy to reach from the Saas valley. The climb involves walking up on glaciated terrain, and doesn’t have rock climbing sections.

Once we reach the Allalinhorn summit (4,027 m / 13,211 ft), the views are fantastic! This peak is located in an ideal position in relation to its neighboring peaks. Some of the peaks we will observe from the top are:

  • Rimpfischhorn
  • Strahlhorn
  • Monte Rosa
  • Matterhorn
  • Weisshorn
  • Fletschhorn
  • Weissmies
  • and Mont Blanc Massif

The technical difficulty of this ascent is F+. Yet, it is still a high altitude traverse, and it includes glaciated terrain and crevasses, which demand following strict safety rules.

The total climbing time from Mittelallalin is around 2 hours. A great program for an enjoyable day in the Alps. I look forward to guiding you on this rewarding Alpine experience soon.
