Scheidegg Wetterhorn Westpfeiler
TD/ED, VI, HD 1000m, 12./13.7.2003
I'd tried this route allready in 2001 with Jens, but there we had bad luck: Our rope got partly damaged by another party falling over our rope. Then I got a strong electrical shock in a heavy thunderstorm that forced us to bivi on Pargrätzlischulter and on the rapell the following day one of the ropes of the other party we were going down with damaged their rope by a falling rock.
This time we had more luck. Sam and I could only start from Zürich late in the morning, so we climbed up to Pargrätzlischulter the first day and wanted to get back on the next day. But as the descent took us so long, we had to stay one more night in the Gleckstein hut.
