Topic - Camping above 4000m

Stujbro - on 18 Aug 2012
Hi

Im setting out to climb the Weissmies and/or the Bishorn/Weisshorn this September and am planning on camping above 4000m as close to the summits as possible, (i know this wont be possible on the weisshorn).

Has anyone camped this high before on those summits and have any advice for pitching the tent (Black Diamond Firstlight). I have snow stakes but i suspect the ground will be too frozen so im thinking ice axes and snow shovel to stake out the tent??

Thanks
