I got to somewhere between 3400 and 3500 meters up the normal route up the Punta Rossa della Grivola, having started at the Vittorio Sella hut. As I didn't have the equipment that would have been necessary to go on until the top, I stopped at the point mentioned. Already from that spot on nearly 3500 meters, the view was breathtaking, though, as it was fabulous weather - the entire range of the Pennine Alps and the Mont Blanc, the two being clearly separated by the Col du Grand Saint-Bernard, could be seen as a gigantic backdrop to the north and northeast, and right behind the summit of Gran Paradiso one could even see the Alpe marittime, the weather was so clear!
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
