First train up from Grindelwald Jungfraujoch at 7:25 at Jungfrau at 9:00

Route
From Jungfraujoch to Mönch via South-West ridge (SAC 216.5) took about three hours (3h),  We started around 9:30 and where at peak at 12:30. Climbingvise route is not very demanding (would be around 4a) but there are no much hooks around (read no hooks). Securing must be made using rocks and cracks and friends etc. There were not much snow, only at the top about last 100 meter where was only hiking part left. There one have to use crampons and axe.

Downwards Mönch to Mönchjochhütte we took the normalroute (SAC 216.1). This was quite crowded because of the very beautiful sunny day. Descend via normal route was relatively easy and there was security "stange" here and there to help.
Most demanding part generally was the hight of the route. At first day at more than 4000 meters it's already much harder to climb. Second day was much more easier in this sence.

next day at Jungfrau
