Back to Kandersteg again yesterday - there's a lot of fresh snow and strong winds at the moment, so it seems the best place to be. Short walk-in, good conditions and great routes with low avalanche risk. Much colder than Tuesday, so no drips, good quality ice, and not many folk climbing. We climbed Pingou, the classic line.
