It's been a challenging week with very changeable weather. We started with a real "cairngorm" battle on Mont Vélan.

More bad weather made for a damp - but happily short - walk to the Tasch hut and a nervous wait to see if the clouds would clear. They did, and left a perfect day. The other 6 people in the hut all went to the Rimpfischorn leaving us alone on an eerily deserted Alphubel.

Ghostly Matterhorn in the distance.

Top of the steep bit.

And the summit! The huge wooden summit cross is completely buried.
