Ascent Trip Report

Nice scrambling in a snow storm and - accordingly - a very limited view from the ridge. I accompanied a bunch of guys from Glasgow on their yearly climb, and we struggled together in the mist to find the last way to the summit. A sharp contrast to the descent; following the Tourist route down, the sun broke through the clouds and suddenly we found ourselves meeting people without coats walking in sneakers. Later also climbed together with Karin - same route - in September 2008.
