I'm planning a short acclimisation trip to the Swiss Alps between 23-26th July2013. I was planning to bag some 4000ers over two days (i.e. 24th and 25th, with a hut ascent on 23rd) before I head off for a Pik Lenin expedition on 26th. Nothing too strenuous in grade, just in altitude - so I was looking at a combo of Castor and Pollux or Breithorn in the Monte Rosa Massif, but to be honest I'd be happy for anywhere with good altitude in Switzerland over these days - the key for me as I said is acclimisation.
