Intended to hike to Lägh dal Lunghin since it had snowed two days before and the summits were still under a snow and ice cover. Headed onwards to Pass Lunghin (three way water divide) and from there tackled Piz Lunghin. Hiked the south-west ridge, then headed up into the west face, did the final traverse to the south 15m beneath the summit but got stuck there. The final gully was covered with ice. Might have reached the summit still but it was unclear whether we would be able to descend without any protective equipment. Returned back to the south-west ridge where we were visited by an ibex girl and a bearded vulture almost simultaneously.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
