Description

Crossing the Weissmies in the Valais, above Saas Grund, from the Almageller cabine in Hohsaas, is a magnificent mountaineering race. This is an ideal first ascent and crossing at 4000m!

After an early breakfast, we walk on the moraines until the Zwischbergenpass. If the weather is nice, we will enjoy there one of the most beautiful sunrises in the Alps! Then, after a short walk on the glacier, we reach the ridge. It offers a nice easy and varied climb until the summit! From the summit, the itinerary follows the Triftgletscher until the cable car that takes us to the valley. It offers magnificent views of the whole Mischabel massif!

I propose to you the following 2-day program:

Day 1
Meeting at 9AM in the plains and travelling to Saas Almagell. Then ascent to the Almagellerhütte (around 3:30hs).

Day 2
Up at dawn and departure to cross the Weissmies.

If you have more time and you wish to prolong the pleasure up there, I propose to you the following. Instead of descending right away to the valley, we can spend the night in the Weissmieshütte and continue the next day with the Lagginhorn, another beautiful 4000 in the region.

I invite you to contact me if you are interested in this beautiful adventure. It’s ideal for mountaineering beginners who wish to have their first experience at 4000m. I would love taking you up there, and if I am not available another UIAGM guide from my team can take you there!
