From mid station on the Metro Alpin, up the Hohlaubgrat ridge joining the route from Britannia. Descent via normal F route to Mittelallalin. Cracking route. With Artur and Patrik.

From Brittania hut via early cable car. Pleasant snow ridge, rock step a bit loose and unpleasant but easy.
Descent by normal route and walking down the pistes to Felskinn,

Up to ~3000m by cable car, night at the Britannia hut, then up to the summit along the Hohlaubgrat and down to the Mittelallalin station via the normal route. Climbed in cold, wet, snowy conditions. Glauco did the hard work on the rock step. Kevin's first 4000.

Jumped out of the service tunnel on the metro: a steep plod to the rock step but a lovely summit, just made it before the mists rolled in. Descended via the normal route then "enjoyed" a thunderstorm on the walk to the Britannia Hut.

Started just before 4, as we were kitting up at the edge of the glacier it started raining, with tunder & lightning getting progressively closer. When it got to <0.5s between the flash and the bang, we (along with other groups) decided to bail, but the storm receded as we were heading back to the hut. Turned back round and had a clear run to the summit.

My second Alpine peak. Had the summit to ourselves after an efficient ascent despite stopping to take photos of the huge anvil cloud over Italy, before wandering back down the ordinary route.

Not an AD route but an excellent PD under normal conditions. Did it with Pete in warm conditions with soft snow and melt ...the final rock pitch wonderful despite things dropping off around us...descended the normal route after meeting friends on the summit with perfect timing.

Left the Britannia hut at 5.30ish, reached the summit at about 10. Basically just a snow plod, though the short rock section at the top is fun but easy enough.
