2012 July ~ Lagginhorn south ridge (4010m)

Last weekend (22/23. July) I was in the swiss alps with my friend Olli. We have planned to do a so called "Hochtour" - a high altitude tour to the Lagginhorn 4010m above Saas Grund in the canton of Wallis in Switzerland.

To make things a bit more interesting, we didn't take the normal route to the peak but the long and exposed south ridge. I will share with you some impressions of this nice and challenging tour:
