Big glacier plod with only one day's acclimatisation!

Informed by the hut guardian on arrival that a storm was coming in that evening so we ran down to the Monte Rosa hut to avoid being stuck there. An interesting descent... lots of crevasses and thunder crashing around us!

Left Gnifetti Hut at 6am alone as David H turned back. 4 hours straightforward plod, ~ 900m ascent to the Margherita Hut on the Signalkuppe. Most dangerous bit was the final slope with about 50 roped parties coming down the steep trench and another 50 trying to go up. A man fell and decided that grabbing me (soloing) was the best idea! Avoid weekends.

From Gnifetti hut. This is a straightforward snow plod, but it does go quite high! I got a bad headache on the descent which lingered for an hour or so back in the valley.

Used for acclimatisation. Started the climb from approx 100m above the Monte Rosa hut where we were camped. Did not use rope as glacier in good condition.

From the Gnifetti Hut in rapidly worsening weather: a real hooley on the last tramp to the summit/hut and even worse on the way to the old Margherita Hut: electrical storm and hailstones. Fun (in retrospect).
