to summit Zinalrothorn (where we failed dismally two days later due to our very bad health conditions and a night without sleep in Rothornhütte) we prepared ourselfes with a hike onto Mettelhorn which was a very nice thing to do and can only be highly recommended.
"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."
