After a summer of reliable pessimism MeteoSuisse fooled us with what turned out to be a hugely optimistic forecast. We believed it and headed up to the lovely Mischabel hut. After an excellent meal and a comfortable night we woke to find heavy snow falling...not ideal. Setting off in the hope it was just a shower we ended up spending an hour at 3600m in the group shelter until we finally gave in and turned back, fresh snow making the planned ENE ridge of the Lenzspitz out of the question.
