Summit in sudden storm! Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2016
In the company of my son Christoph & our local guide David, we started from Boval hut in pleasant sunny conditions. As we reached the summit ridge, we were engulfed in a very windy,wet snowstorm which forced us to rapidly head downhill to avoid a snow whiteout! The storm passed just as quickly so that the remainder until the Tschierva hut & beyond was easy going. However, rain returned upon reaching Hotel Roseg where a horse carriage awaited us for the 7 km ride to Pontresina in continuous rainy conditions. All in all, a very long day with dramatic weather changes!
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
