There are 4’000m peaks in the alps, and there are peaks slightly below the magical 4’000m line. The wonderful Bietschhorn belongs to the latter. A mountain being not quite 4’000m leads many people (and even alpinists) to the wrong conclusion that it’s not worth to climb it. Totally wrong. Okay, well, if you’ve climbed most of the alps 4’000m + peaks, the pressure of filling your personal summit book has gone.
Bietschhorn is a very majestic mountain located between the Bernese Alps and those of the Valais. It’s a long and high climb, taking about 13 – 15 hrs r/t. To me, climbing this mountain was a dream which came true. What I liked most about this climb was the persistant ride on top of the ridge. I hope this photo conveys this feeling a little bit!
