 Perfect conditions today on the Alphubel Rotgrat - warm-ish but a clear night still froze the snow, and the rock was dry. 

Early morning on the Rotgrat

Climbing the "easier than it looks" corner

There's a quick and easy descent down the normal route but we chose to go down the South Ridge Eisnase. This looked to be still in good snowy condition - but sadly the snow was only 2 inches thick, which made for a tricky frontpoint down-climb.
