Hidden - 12/Sep/15

First 4000m to acclimatise. Not too busy on the mountain that day. Robert lead to Feejoch and waited there for us. I lead the final bit and return.

Nice route to acclimatise. One snow bridge and a crevasse (could step up on the way up, but walked the long way round to avoid slushy edges later on).

Very nice easy 4000er for my 51st birthday. With sister. On way down, pootled along PD ridge of Alphubel ridge for a change - was interesting. Made the descent slow, hot, and a boring tiring trudge - last off the mountain - 3:30pm :(

Using as a gentle warm up but near zero visibility above 3700m forced us to abandon. Played around with crevasse rescue on the lower slopes instead

Fist summit with Alan. It's a doddle really, but a good route to practise alpine basics of moving together, taking coils, using axes, crampon work etc.

Climbed on the way back from the ridge to the Fechopf. I can't really recommend this route other than for acclimatisation purposes - guided tourist trains and dodging skiers on the piste!

First route of the week, Acclimatising, train up to top station, then plodded up to summit, good weather, and fantastic view of Matterhorn. Stayed on top for an hour or so, then back to station, absolutely knackered, had to sit for half an hour before i had the strength to take crampons off! But it started the acclimatisation.

Quick stretch of the legs after a big night out in Holzwurm and Metro bar... Thankfully was the first one on the route and at the summit before all the guided parties etc. Fantastic views from the top and then back down quickly for a spot of skiing!
