It's been a busy week! A trip over to the Oberland to climb the Eiger was frustrated by cold and strong winds but we still managed to climb the Monch,  and then the Jungfrau on Swiss National Day (It's worth remembering that the Swiss Half Price travel card works on the Jungfrau railway)

Back in the Valais we made the long haul up to the Dent Blanche hut, hoping the weather would be kind to us for the last peak of a busy 2 weeks. Happily cloud, rain and impressive thunder cleared away overnight to give a cold but clear day for the Dent Blanche summit.
