Becs de Bosson
Zustieg: die landschaftlich schöne Variante via Pas de Lona und Mittagessen auf der Cabana des Becs de Bosson (sehr freundlich und empfehlenswert).   Gipfelbesteigung Becs de Bosson (T5, II): Erste Schlüsselstelle ist ein senkrechtes Wändchen mit Fixseile. Über ein guter Wegspur weiter bis ein Fels am...

Trois Mamelles (center peak)
Die Hügel auf Mauritius sind zwar klein (vor allem in Vergleich mit Nachbarinsel La Réunion) aber bieten trotzdem einige spannende Wandertouren. Sehr beliebt sind zum Beispiel: Le Pouce: 450Hm, 1h45, T3+ (nur für die letzte 40Hm zum Gipfel), Wanderparkplatz zwischen Moka und St. Pierre. Schöne Aussicht auf die...

Piz Vallatscha (Hikr-Erstbesteigung), Piz Miez, Scopi, Pizzo del Corvo
Piz Vallatscha gibt es in Graubünden zwei mal. Piz Vallatscha am Ofenpass wird wohl noch regelmässiger besucht. Piz Vallatscha am Lukmanierpass ist deutlich weniger bekannt. Auf Internet findet man nur Infos auf gr3000.ch sowie im eBook "Einsame Gipfelziele Graubünden". Auch in Strahlerkreisen hat der Berg offenbar ein wenig...

Lobhörner Überschreitung

Das Ziel von diesem Bericht ist vor allem das ganze fotografischnoch etwas besser zu dokumentieren. Weitere Anmerkungen / Ergänzungen: An einem schönen...

Piz Giarsinom, Macun-Seen, Piz Sursassa
Die Seenplatte von Macun ist (nicht zuletzt dank dem Label "Nationalpark") ein beliebtes Wanderziel, auch wenn die Wanderung von Zernez bis Lavin (oder umgekehrt) recht lang ist, und nur auf der Zernez-Seite eventuell mit Alptaxi abgekürzt werden kann. Da ich eh noch kaum im Unterengadin unterwegs war, war diese Wanderung eine...

Walop-Runde
Die Runde um die Walop-Alp, von Widdergalm über Stierengrat, Kaiseregg und Schafberg bis zum Rotenchaste, ist eine grossartige Überschreitung für gute Alpinwanderer. Die T6-Schüssstellen (der Felsgrat von Stierengrat zu Hasensrpungspitzen und die Annäherung vom Rotenchaste) sind kurz aber dürfen nicht unterschätzt werden....

Day 1 Sertig Sand - Sertigpass - Passhöreli - Keschhütte 1350m ascent, 600m descent, 7h (very relaxed pace), PD- We keep a relaxed pace up the Chüealptal from Sertig Sand towards the Sertigpass. We observe two chamois trekking across the snow and get jealous of some skiers in descent, who are obviously enjoying themselves...

Grindelgrat
The Grindelgrat has not seen so many Hikr reports yet. This is surprising, since the route is sunny, scenic, relatively short and suitable for beginners. It is fairly safe (up to but not exceeding 30°, with no danger of falling except for the slightly corniced cliffs behind the the summit). The whole valley is a nature reserve,...

Monte Brè, Monte Boglia, Gandria
Already in January, I had planned a hike onto Monte Boglia via the southwest ridge (or "Igor's secret ridge", as the Italian Hikrs call it). My backpack was already packed, but I fell ill overnight and had to cancel the trip. One month later, there is another chance to escape the bad weather in the north and enjoy some sunshine in...

Chli Chärpf, descent via Bischofalp
After last week's rain and mild temperatures, it was clear that we would need to go fairly high to find decent snow. Our choice fell on Chli Chärpf. Since we were thinking of taking on of the alternative decent routes (Filetsch or Bisschofalp) we park the car at the layby slightly below P. 1261 (Büelhütte), rather than on the...

Rottällihorn, Gross Leckihorn, descent Witenwasserenpass-Oberwald
Day 1 Realp - Rottällihorn - Rotondohütte 1400m ascent, 350m descent, 4h45, PD The weather is perfect and skiers have come to Realp by the dozens to take advantage of the conditions. Around Höhenbiel, the "summer route" is passable on skis as well, with the exception of the debris of one avalanche, which needs to be...

Fil de Cassons
Until 2015, a cable car made the Fil de Cassons accessible to skiers in the Flims-Laax area. There are already big plans for a futuristic replacement cable car. However, in the meantime, the superb south-southwest slopes of the Fil de Cassons are much quieter, making them an interesting goal for a ski tour. Though there is snow...

Sassauna-Girenspitz
Sassauna, Pfäwi, Lägend Sagettis, Hoch Sagettis, Girenspitz, Höchstelli and countless other small peaks in between. Linked together they make one of the most attractive grass/Schrofen ridges in Switzerland. Attractive because of the very consistent difficulty, always around T4, never much easier, but never much harder either....

Tschirpen (via ferrata) + Hörnli (former via ferrata)
The Arosa ski area might not seem like the most attractive setting for a hike. Still, as long as you don't walk through the middle of all of the infrastructure, there is some great scenery and plenty of opportunity for exploration. We made a loop (or rather: a near-perfect square) around the southern half of the ski area, visiting...

Schafnase NW ridge + Rossflue
The northwest ridge on the Schafnase summit of the Giswilerstock is a popular route on Hikr, and rightfully so. The nearby Glaubenbielen pass means that you can complete a worthwhile and challenging scrambling route in less than 3 hours. Including the traverse of the Rossflue gives you even more fun, while the total time stays...

Wildgärst + Schwarzhorn (via ferrata)
In all of September, I didn't manage a single hike in Switzerland above 2000m. Also for the first day of October, the weather forecast initially looked quite dreary. A last minute improvement in the weather forecast prompted me to spontaneously aim for a fairly high summit after all. I drove to the Schwarzwaldalp with the aim of...

Monviso
"There is no such thing as bad weather, only longer travel distances to reach the good weather." Taking this motto to heart, madu and I drove for six hours to the Cottian Alps, with the objective of climbing the region's highest and most iconic peak: the Monviso / Monte Viso / "Re di Pietra". The mountain has received quite some...

Upgrades on the Linderweg? (Uetliberg)
A column in the Basler Zeitung this week was extremely critical of an upgrade of the Linderweg, the path that follows a diagonal line through the Uetliberg east face, connecting Friesenberg, Denzlerweg and Dürlerstein (see also this thread on Hikr). I decided to go for a closer look. So what's the fuss about? There are indeed...

Alphubel Rotgrat (aborted at ca. 3900m)
In hindsight, the Alphubel Rotgrat was too ambitious for our group. Being five people was too much as well, because even though we moved in two roped parties, we spent a lot of time waiting for each other. But let's start from the beginning... Day 1 Täschalp - Täschütte 1h15, 500m ascent, T2   The...
