Ascent Trip ReportThe forecast called for a cloudy morning gradually clearing, so I spared myself the usual dawn start and arrived at the Jaunpass at around 10am, where it was still relatively quiet and the carpark only half full. I set off up south and started climbing alongside the ski piste behind some other snowshoe-ers and cross country skiers. This turned out to be a mistake, on the way back down I followed the correct route - on the way up this would have meant turning immediately left (east) past the chalets of Chlimoos, through some trees, then eventually south avoiding the ski piste completely on its eastern side. However, the two routes converge at the top of the first slopes on the broad, flat ridge leading to Oberenegg Läger. A somewhat steeper slope followed (although I could still walk directly up it in my Denali Ascent snowshoes), followed by a delightful ridge walk on a well flattened trail, which made for mainly quick progress. At this point the residual mist cleared leaving beautiful warm sunshine, and I enjoyed a long early lunch stop at the 1926m summit cross, which seemed to be the limit of the ambitions of most of the others on route today. A long flattish section of ridge then led to the final steeper slope, which was topped by a very small cornice, where others had already broken through before me leaving easy access to the summit. There I found 15 or so people, mainly sunbathing and/or eating, and trails coming up also from the southwest and southeast. The views west across to the toothed ridge of the Dents de Savigny and Ruth were great, and I made a mental note to try the scrambling route to the summit of the former at the next opportunity. The grade never exceeded WT2 and a fall on the steeper sections would have little to no consequence unless the snow were very icy ie an excellent beginners route for snowshoes. REturn by the same route was easily accomplished and a coffee and pain au chocolat (this is ..just about.. French-speaking Switzerland after all) completed the fun.
