Lenzspitze is the lowest summit of the
five main peaks of the Mischabel-group, the others being T?schorn,
Dom, Lenzspitze, and Nadelhorn. The climb is mostly done from the east, over the Hohbalmglacier- plateau, and then the north-east face; Not very steep ice-climbing (40 degrees).
When climbed from the east the usual starting point is at Saas-Fee(1800m), and you can stay the night at The Mischabel-cabin (3329). For good snow/ice conditions it is recommended to start early. When climbed from the west you can start at Randa, and spend the night at the Domh¸tte(2940); Qualified guides are available at Bergsteigerschule Weissmies, 3910
Saas-Grund (can be found on the Internet).
