Transfer to Switzerland and overnight in Saas Grund.
We meet, check your equipment and and backpack. From Saas Grund, we take the bus to Saas Fee and start our climb just outside the village.
We walk through the typical alpine vegetation beneath the north wall of the Mittaghorn to Plattjen.
With a view of the lake of Mattmark we traverse farther to the snow fields which give access to the Britanniahut (3030 m) (about 1250 m climb but we spread it throughout the day)
Today is the first 4000 meter peak on the menu. We wake up early for our climb to the Strahlhorn (4190 m). It is a gentle climb through some glaciers until the Adler Pass (3789 m). From here it’s a bit steeper, until we reach the top of the Strahlhorn.
We return to the Britanniahut the same way. (+/- 1320 m)
Today we have a double blow hit. With the Metro Alpin, we trace out to the station Mittel-Allalin (3460 m). There we start using crampons.
We climb through the Feeglacier to Feejoch (3826 m) and then on the eastern wall to the top of the Allalinhorn (4027 m), the first 4000 meter peak of our trip. Weather on Feejoch we try the other way. The impressive ridge of the Feekopf leads us on mixed terrain to Alphubeljoch. A final steep slope and 435 vertical meters separate us here on the summit of the Alphubel (4206 m).
We descend northeasterly towards Langflue.
We’ll take a fresh beer before the cable cars bring us back to Saas Fee. Overnight in Saas Grund. (+ 1070 m / -1700 m)
Relative rest. We take the cable car with a small daypack along the via ferrata to the summit of the Mittaghorn (3143 m). We have here a magnificent view of what awaits us tomorrow. Overnight back at our hotel in Saas Grund. (+ 570 m / -570 m or -1350 m)
We choose between two interesting routes to the Almagellerhutte (2894 m). Nature lovers among us will opt for flowers route, those who want to focus their attacks just spice up the “Erlebnispfad”. Both bring us to Almagelleralm where we can eat and drink.
(both approximately + 1000 m).
It’s still dark when we start climbing to the Zwischbergenpass (3268 m). We climb as high as possible in the snowy south west flank of the Weissmies upwards. Then we start scrambling on the upper part of the south ridge.
This brings us to an almost horizontal ridge. Another short steep bit and we can set foot on the summit of the Weissmies (4017 m).
The descent runs over the normal route that winds between magical gletserafbreuken and brings us to the cable car Hohsaas.
We sleep a last night in our hotel in Saas Fee (+ 1150 m / -920 m). Fresh beer, good shower and excellent meal in Saas Grund. The next day, we return back home.
