The most accessible of the highest
The house is located in the Valais Alps and is the highest peak of the Mischabel group, which counts 11 four thousand. With a prominence of over 1000 meters, with its altitude of 4545 m above sea level, it is the third highest mountain in the Alps. Due to its height and accessibility, Dom is becoming a destination for many climbers, but also for mountain guides with a clientele.
View of the House from the boarding
Unlike the Matterhorn and Weisshorn, the Dom is not dominant over the surroundings. On the way out of Randy, we will see views of the summit itself, at the entrance to the glacier. It is here that you can camp on several small platforms. However, it is also possible to sleep in the cottage, which lies about 200 meters below.
Views from the bivouac
Matterhorn (4478 m) and Weisshorn (4506 m).
Around three o'clock in the morning, the first climbers set out for the summit. The path begins at the edge of the glacier slide, after which it rises slightly to the Festijoch saddle. Here is the only longer section of rock climbing of difficulty 3 UIAA.
After overcoming the Festijoch saddle, it is possible to choose two different paths. Either along the glacier in the north wall (PD) or along the Festigrat ridge (PD +).
Sunrise over the Matterhorn
During the ascent you can see the Matterhorn, Weisshorn and many other beautiful hills in many forms.
Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to take a picture of the top panorama without people. However, these are views that are still worth seeing. With good visibility it is possible to see Mont Blanc.
