we made our way uo to Piz Buin on a perfect late summer day after a cold front. The summit block ascent was quite an adventure with all this snow and ice on the rocks. Reopening the track on Ochsentaler Ferner was quite an adventure, too, nearly all the crevasses were hidden under the fresh snow.
But we had the summit for us alone - this was surely the best bit of this excellent day.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
