Careful on this easy one!

Don't let this peak's reputation as the "easiest 4000m in the Alps" fool you. We climbed it on July 15, 2006 and five feet off the track in a smooth flat area two people got swallowed up by an invisible crevasse. They had to be recued by three different helos. The snow was exceedingly soft and I fell in to my thighs several times. The snow felt totally inconsequential. I'll second the view from the top, though. It's beautiful, especially looking East...
