Today I am happy. I finally complet this face. The one in yellow from 2014 was really nice, the new one in red is definitely not the same exposure, the rappel is common, at very bottom.
To avoid all the Swiss train mess and delay I decided to spend a night at the Hospice. Always nice with great welcome plus all in French. Today the classic route to the top of Hübbschorn was kind of icy all along the south face, nice way to begin. From the top all first section is a bit slaloming to join the big diagonal. This section is the crux plus today was pack hard snow (does this place see the sun? Or is it just the constant wind). After the technical place the diagonal is pure happiness and I join my older way.
Few small turn and 10m rappel then I am at the final jump. A last moment focus for Seb, without snickers and it’s done. Soooooo cool. It’s definitely a super nice way with two distinct section, well the technical one is the upper one but with great snow, and not crazy avi danger maybe it’s easier.
