Majinghorn 3054masl

From Leukerbad over Torrenthorn-Vorgipfel (route 693)

The Majinghorn is one of the few 3000 for a ski trip in the region. Most rapidly from Leukerbad, but it needs secure snow conditions.

General information: The route is LD+ (little bit difficult), an exposed traverse in 40° steep slope, there is a variant of a on the NW flank with QD (quite difficult, 39° on 100 elevation gain). There are 320m ascent, and then either 1640 descent to Leukerbad or 1680m descent to Ferden. The slope direction is each and it takes approximately 2 hour for the ascent. The route can be found in the National Map 267S swisstopo.

Starting point: mountain station of the top ski lift (2730 masl) under the Torrenthorn-Vorgipfel above Leukerbad.

Comments: Avalanche danger at the crossing under the Torrenthorn and in the NW flank. Better are the rather difficult direct descent on the NW flank (option a) to Leukerbad or the descent into the Lötschental (option b).

Ascent: From the top ski lift on the fairly abrupt W ridge to the secondary pre-summit of the Torrenthorn and eastwards to where the slope begins to rise against the Torrenthorn. Sloping crossing (without skins) of the steep (40°) and exposed northern flank pass below the summit rocks of the Torrenthorn on the Majinggletscher. Northeastward through point 2856 in a wavy terrain, then on the steeper slope to the summit cairn of Majinghorns (3054masl).

Descent:
option a) Descents starts with the NW flank: From the summit by the SW trough either to the second Couloir, which begins south of the "Felskopf" point 2735. Through the top part of the quite slim and incised NW Couloir down (top 100 elevation gain 39°, then 250 elevation gain 32°). Or a little easier is to follow the trough further 200m, use a short, less steep channel and achieve the Couloir to the right, where it is still 32° steep. From the end of the couloir (2300m) to the right to avoid a rock face. Continue holding down on the left Majingalpe where you achieve the Gitzifurggu slope (route 690).

option b) Descent to Ferden: From the top down to the south of Oberferdenpass (2896m, without name on the map). Over a short, steep slope (cornice can complicate entry) on the "Oberferdengletscher" and on the Ferdenrothorn route (route 691) to Ferden (1375 masl).
