The lack of snow is very noticeable compared with half a century ago!

Since this photo (5 days ago) it snowed considerably... went up the Hornli ridge to summit yesterday with a client and was in crampons for half the route!

What has the Dent d'Herrens done to offend you Ben?

haha.. well it's a pile of rubble... and not even as big a pile of rubble as the matterhorn! ;-)

Rubble? How dare you!
The rock is in boulders, not powder, therefore the Alpine club defines it as "sound rock for the Valaisan Alps".

Also, it is a real mountaineer's mountain, in contrast to the flashy tourist show-off next door.
