ALONG THE NORTH-EAST RIDGE
From July to mid September
This is the climb to the southern peak of Nadelgrat, located in the Mischabel group, in the heart of Switzerland Valais. Exceptional for its line, rocky quality and exposure is the ridge between Lenzspitze and Nadelhorn.
The rugged high mountain environment that characterizes this area and the beautiful climb of its ridge makes it a great classic, which should not be missed.
TECHNICAL INFO: The approach to Mischabel Hutte from Saas Fee is quite tiring and steep, through a long stretch equipped with ropes and stairs. The north-eastern ridge, usually is very peaceful and never busy compared to the nearby north wall. However it is a beautiful itinerary with difficulty up to III ° on rocky and steep slopes on snow/ice up to 50 °. Along the stretch to get to the summit of Nadelhorn the exposure is always very high and we need to be focused on our step for a long time.
