From the Täschalp, 2200m, over the Längfluehjoch, great bivouac at 3,400m, -1°C and no wind (in November!), - dinner, service, view and air conditioning perfect. With Wolf, who carried the rope and the stove in his very large rucksack, and also did most of the trail breaking! - north side 30 - 50 cm powder, ridge somewhat less but windblown. Extremely good rock climbing on solid( - in the Valais!), snow free, rock. Saturday and Sunday not a single cloud anywhere in the sky, view from Ortler in the east to Mont Blanc in the west. Didn't see another soul anywhere.
