route_description

The ascent from the Oberaletschhutte does not present any particular technical difficulty. We were 1 expert and 2 beginners, and although it took us a long time we managed it without issues.

The descent by the NW ridge to the Mittelaletschhutte was much more challenging, in particular given the lack of expertise of two of us in the group. In particular, the way goes through some very exposed ridges (albeit apparently not particularly difficult) that can make this close to impossible to people suffering heights. Note once again that this is for non-expert climbers.

timing

Note again: these timings are for non expert climbers (as 2 out of 3 of us are):
Ascent (from Oberaletschhutte to summit): 9h
Descent (from summit to Mittelaletschhutte): 5h
