Rewarding two day tour from Engelberg – Lucerne

The 4017 meter high Weissmies can be climbed in two days.

Crossing the summit over the SSO ridge is a very rewarding tour. It includes easy block climbing from the Zwischbergenpass in the second to third difficulty ridge to the pre summit. Then over a short beautiful snow ridge to the summit. The descent takes place over the imposing western flank, characterised by crevasses, to Hohsaas. From there, we take the Hohsaas mountain railway to Saas Grund, which is easy on your knees. From where we return to Lucerne by public transport at about 13 o’clock.
