Ascent Trip Report

Made use of the wonderful Douglasshutte on the way up after summiting Kuhgrat earlier in the day. Very well appointed - Lee and Rob told me not to expect this kind of accommodation at all alpine huts.

A fun snow climb - just a bit dicey as we descended off the summit ridge. I didn't envy the other climbers heading up after us - things were starting to get really soupy in the hot sun, even as early as 10am.
