Jungfrau 4158m

The East Face Of The Jungfrau From Fiescherhorn

The snowy col in the centre of the picture is the Rottalsattel, 3885m. This is reached via the long & broad snow ridge below and the short rocky buttress below that. The fine upper SE ridge can be seen on the left hand skyline. Excellent snow conditions in August 2016.

The Steady Ascent To Rottalsattel With Monch & Eiger Beyond

Making good progress after an 0330 breakfast at the Monchsjoch Hut which is situated near the base of the right hand skyline of the Monch (central highest peak).

The Route Traverses To Rottalsattel And Short Steep Ascent To SE Ridge

Excellent conditions today from here to the summit but care is required of avalanche danger in fresh snow conditions or exacting and exposed cramponing if the ridge or traverse to it is icy.

Great snow conditions. Monch beyond with SW Ridge coming towards camera.
