Traverse of the mountain from the Almageller hut to the Hohsaas hut via the Hohsaas glacier.


Author: Giles Thurston on 2006-06-06

Fantastic route & far superior than the usual guided route from the Hohsaas hut uplift & back again. The walk up to the Almageller hut is long but worth it & the descent through the Hohsaas Glacier can be heavily crevassed
