Route description:

The final peak in the Grindelwald trio of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. The Jungfrau has an interesting "normal" route which weaves around the peak seeking a safe and logical line with difficulites encountered on rock, glacier and steep snow.
Many of the rock scrambling sections are protected by fixed gear or stakes allowing teams to move quickly in both ascent and descent. In icy conditions some sections can be delicate and insecure. An early start is a good idea to allow a descent of the mountain before the snow softens up.

This is classic alpinism at it's finest, with an ascetic climb and an inspiring panorama of peaks to view from the summit.

Required experience/skill level:

Intermediate. Some rock scrambling experience useful.

Length (in metres):

840m from Jungfrau Station. Summit height - 4158m

Time/duration:

4.5-5hrs in ascent, 3.5hrs descent.

Starting point/base:

Grindelwald, Jungfrau railway to Jungfraujoch station. Often climbed from the Monchjoch hut too.

Maximum guide ratio:

1:2

Normal season:

June - October

Final days skiing in Iran. A great couple of skis here with sunshine and a lot of powder. Some of the best #skitour days I’ve ever done.

On the lower slopes of Damavand, the highest peak in Iran.
Some pretty wild weather occasionally, but good to be out. We ended up skinning a 1000m before picking our way down through the gullies back to the car.

The weather for tomorrow looks ace, so looking forward to a big day.

Had a great warmup - shake down yesterday at Dizin, the main resort here. Plenty of lifts and options. And tons of snow boarders.
