"We did it the hard way, in summer and up the Wildstrubel Glacier. It took us about three and a half hours from the Lammeren hut to the Mittlerer gipfel. The views of the entire Alps from the summit were sensational. We were lucky to be completely alone on the mountain on a crystal clear autumn day. The glacier and its crevasses are not to be under estimated however." - Wildstrubel, chrispatient, Sep 30, 2011
"We had taken the cable car up to the plateau above Kandersteg for our Explorer Scouts to do some climbing. Their leader, David, and I took the opportunity to climb this peak by the waymarked path." - Gällihorn, munroman, Aug 11, 2009
"Horu jsme zdolali s Petrem Nemravou a Pavlem Hroudou. První den jsme aklimatizovali výjezdem do horní stanice vlaku. Ve spojení s přípitkem se nám trochu zamotala hlava. Druhý den jsme vyrazili za krásného počasí a horu jsme zdolali. Zážitek vrcholový hřebínek - dlouhý a ostrý :-)" - Mönch, jaroslavmuzik, Aug 1, 2008
"My father R A Wilkins and I walked up on skiis with skins alpine touring and roped and scaled to the peak on foot with crampons - We signed the visitors book (see photo) which is kept in a tin under a rock - descended the ridge and skied down to the mountain hut later." - Finsteraarhorn, jonwilphoto, Mar 13, 1968
