Ascent Trip Report

Took the cable car from Hohsaas. Gloriously sunny on the ascent but clouded over very quickly so no views from the top. Summitted at 09:45. Descended to the Weissmies hut for the night in preparation for Lagginhorn the following day (from which we had amazing views of Weissmies and the surrounding peaks).
