welcome home morceaux

How was the tour? I hope the weather was not too bad. Here it looks a bit instabil.

Thank you!

The trip was fantastic, and the weather was not too bad indeed, but we couldn't reach the summit.
In the morning we saw only a few little clouds on the far southwest, but as we reached the most difficult section on the ridge, those clouds were high and huge already, and we realized it would take us about 2 hours to the top, and more 2 back, and those big clouds were growing and growing, so we decided to turn back to avoid scary situations... We reached about 3930 m.
We felt a bit disappointed, but Bernina will be there, so next time.
Thank you for voting.

I'm sure

you took the right decision, there is no sense to risk own and other's life just for one moment. There is a next trip soon to reach summits.
Good luck!
