My fisrt route in the Alps. Very easy if you're already use to moving on snow and ice, but very enjoyable all the same. On nearing the summit we were chased off the mountain by a thunderstorm; funnily enough there were no tourists to greet us as we topped out onto the cable car stations viewing platform.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
