We did the Hohlaubgrat from the Britanniahütte. The weather was pretty doubtful, quite some dark clouds around. Lots of crevasses down on the glacier. The ascent to the Hohlaubgrat was really steep, but really beautiful. Very nice view to Mittelallalin at the other side of the glacier. Just below the summit a nice rock climb with crampons on. Certainly nice when you not used to that. The climb however is really short. The top ridge takes you to the summit in about 2 mins. Cloudy, no view at all, but certainly rewarding. We went down by the way that all the masses are coming up. The most dangerous part of the climb is crossing the ski piste just before Mittelallalin. To see some pictures, visit my homepage.
