I went with two friends on Blüemlisalp 3661 meter. For us a chalanging mountain, because we need to traverse a glacier with many crevasses, then climb a 200 vertical meter ice wall and finaly climb a 500 vertical meter ridge.
We start hiking around 1200h. The white top in the middle is our goal, it seems unreachable from here.
We pass by majestic glaciers.
Finally we see the Blüemlissalphutte on the ridge under the clouds.
We can see a part of our hike. (red line). The icewall you see is 200 vertical meters, we wundering how the ice is. We know that the normal time for this tour from the hut till the top and back is about 9 hours.
At 4:30h. we started hiking. The first part we have fiend our way in between crevasses in the dark. Then we start climbing the ice and the sky get red above our head.
We are on the ridge, the last 500 meters rock and ice.
The way back down is much harder on this mountain, but with an amazing amazing view.
The lake down there is the Oeschinensee.
We were surprised about how we found our way through the crevasses in the dark, we had to jump over a few of them. Good that we didn’t saw how deep they were in the dark.
Thanks to Mountain Hard Wear.

Springtime is great, after a beautiful winter, the white powder melts away to make room for colors of the summer. In spring you can choose your outdoor activity, or do them all in one day…. Snowboarding climbing biking.
Climbing, perfect balance sport after biking & snowboarding

Hiking couloirs, climing a two meter windlip, and droooopiiiiing. With Marcel Loschin.
Today was an INSAME day, riding crazy lines with lots of sluff management in no fall zones, good airtime and perfect snow conditions!
I can say, today I found my limits again WHAT A GOOD DAY.
Never ever had such little space to close my Bindng! About 1 meter wide and 50 cm long. Behind me a 30 meter cliff.
hiking, as always hiking and more hiking…
I imagine my line. Last picture.
Stay focus, no stop because of the sluff, also with a bad view. 20 turns later, last drop with all the sluff
Pfu, made it 😉
While I was rock climbing to the last peak of the day a beautiful young ibex was staring at me.
Last Week I was judge at Poederbaas competition in Val Thorens. Again a super nice event!
beside I’ve been guiding and riding fun couloirs.
