Weissmies traverse 4023m from Almageller hut

Inquire Booking

This traverse in combination with the descent down the ice armoured Northwest face to Hohsaas is among the easiest and most beautiful mixed snow and rock climbs of the classic 4000 meter peaks. It is also considered by many to be one of the best traverses of its difficulty in the Alps.

The terrain is very varied, the rock scrambling entertaining and the summit ridge narrow and the famous subject of many ads. The views from the summit will leave you speechless. The descent follows the normal route down to Hohsaas.

This route is recommended as an introductory climb for all those who intend to take their mountaineering skills to the next level.
