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 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.

The way back down is much harder on this mountain, but with an amazing amazing view.

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.
