Bietschhorn 3934 m Alpinism

Just short of the 4000 m mark, the Bietschhorn is still a popular summit for every ambitious alpinist. The Bietschhorn is a shapely mountain, especially when seen from the south. All its routes are demanding and long; some exceedingly so. The mountains is most often climbed via its W or N ridge. The E-spur is somewhat more demanding; the SE ridge and the S-face via the “Tissières de Rham” are especially difficult. Its many other climbs are rarely or not at all done; probably because the Bietschhorn, in contrast to its beautiful solid shape, can arguably be described as veritble pile of choss. On all routes on the Bietschhorn – stick to the ridge. The flanks are a game of Jenga!
