Ever since the first ascent of Wetterhorn in 1844, the imposing mountain rising up from Grindelwald has captured the imagination of mountaineers. Almost two centuries later, we had a pleasure to climb the ridges and slopes of Wetterhorn on a clear summer day.

Even though we enjoyed the luxury of sleeping in the well-furbished Glecksteinhutte and had an excellent dinner there, the climb was no less beautiful and provided splendid views across the Berner Oberland. Sharing this climb with my parents made it even more special as we were exchanging memories of many earlier climbs as well as nearly three decades of funny stories.

Fine scrambling on the ridge

Slopes near the summit

Windy on top
