A rare day off work, but no rest with the PDG date fast approaching. After an excellent 3 days training in Arolla with the PDG team members this week it was another early start with my neighbour for the Pigne d'Arolla this morning.

Dent Blanche and the Matterhorn from the summit

Fine view to the Bertol hut, scene of yesterday's efforts. 

It's been a long time since it snowed so conditions are "firm" to say the least, making  for a fast rattle off the summit and an exciting descent of the Vuibé glacier.

Next-door neighbour descending the Vuibé glacier like he had a train to catch!
