Two very different types of Alpine climbing this week. First, a hotel-based trip to the Aravis for some multi-pitch rock. No glaciers, training shoe approaches, but an early start and a 20 pitch-long day!

Then back to "proper" alpinism with the 1650m approach to the Mischabel bivouac which sits at 3800m in the col between the Alphubel and Taschhorn. From the bivvy it's "only" 650m or so to the summit (and then "only" 2300m back down to the car!)
