Region: World » Switzerland » Valais » Mittelwallis
Date of the hike:17 October 2006
Hiking grading: T2 - Mountain hike
Mountaineering grading: PD-
Geo-Tags: CH-VS 
Time: 4 days
Route:Zinal - Cabane d'Arpittetaz - Col Milon - Cabane de Tracuit - Bishorn - Zinal
Accommodation:The Cabane de Tracuit is very busy visited hut in from june till end of august, but before and after it's good place to get some sleep before your 'summit' attempt starts!

On the beautiful day of the 17th of october 2006 we reached the summit of the Bishorn at about 10am in the morning.
On this day we were only with 8 people in the cabane, and only 6 people in total who went for the Bishorn. 


Clear sky's overnight and a frosty -6 celsius in the morning, some cold winds at about 3600m, but in overall superb weather for some great fun and spectacular views over the Alps!

Es gab wohl 30-40cm Neuschnee von Anfang des Monates, aber dies war schon gut gesetzt und den 'highway' to the top gab nur wenige Spalten.

Dies war den dritten Tag von einer Bergtour von vier Tagen.

I made this tour together with a friend of my, Nico Top
