West Flank  Sucess!

After climbing the Cresta Sella on Lyskamm, Scott and I descended the E Ridge (witnessed a heli rescue) then hiked up to the Margherita Hut. 11hrs from the Sella Hut. Slept in the overflow room in the hut. My boots felt bad the last hour; like my feet had swollen.
Packed shoulder to shoulder with guides at our dinner table.

Spending the night on top!  Sucess!

Climbed Signalkuppe as the last peak of our Monte Rosa Tour. We succeeded in Climbing all the peaks we wanted since we had perfect weather all week.
During the week I was already a bit worried about spending the night in the Capanna Regina Margherita due to the height, but on the other hand I was super excited as well to sleep on top of one of the highest mountains in the Alps.
Looking back at it: I was feeling sick all night and had to pass on dinner, but enjoying the evening and nightly views from 4557m is pricesless! The next morning we descended back to Zermatt and I felt fine again.
