started in the Arolla valley 200m below the pas de chevres, long day 15hours back to Arolla. Well worth the effort, had to rush down the SW ridge due to thunder storm.Great alpine route , would recommend to everybody as a must do.

Fresh snow made the 'horns' a bit tricky. Ridge to the top is cracking, big holds and excellent rock for the Valais
