Weissmies 4017m


with start at the church of Saas-Almagell via Almagellerhütte and SSE-ridge


Personal Record in 03:01:00 

I left the Pavillon in Saas-Almagell at 5:50 in the morning and arrived at the snow summit of Weissmies at 8:51

Neither crampons nor piolet I used, but took micro crampons in my backpack with me.


Report on my blog...




Weissmies was my first 4000m peak 14 years ago, needless to say in the oldschool mountaineering style with overnight stay at the Almagellerhütte and heavy backpack. This time Weissmies feels so much lighter, scrambling up and down the dry SSE-ridge makes me feel alive and the last meters over the exposed snow ridge to the broad top of Weissmies is just stunning. Over the clouds, in 3h36min at the top from the bottom, there's just pure happiness in my mind. My first skyrunning 4000m treshold is history.


Best conditions can be found in early/mid season when the icefield to the rocky SSE-ridge is still snow-covered, but the rocky ridge itself is free of snow.
