Climb The Weissmies
Mark & Urban Enjoy The Moment Of The Weissmeis Summit
As part of the traverse between Almageller & Weissmeis Huts via the South Ridge and down the north flank to Hohsaas. The team were going so well they also climbed the Jeggihorn in the afternoon as well, before climbing the Lagginhorn the next day. An action packed 3 day mountain journey though the upper Saas Tal.

Dawn Over The Swiss Giants, From The Lagginhorn
From the Strahlhorn to the Dom & Lenspitze. The beautiful skyline ridge separating the Saas & Zermatt valleys contain some of the real alpine giants, and Switzerland's highest peak, the Dom (entirely in within Switzerland unlike the large Dufourspitze whose summit is shared with Italy).
South From The Lagginhorn
Past the classic alpine AD routes of the Lagginhorn South Ridge & Weissmeis North Ridge to the northern glacial flank of the Weissmeis Normal Route and further south to the real giants of the Monte Rosa Massif on the Swiss Italian Alpine frontier.
