Leaving the hut at 5:15, we saw the mountain in an unusual light before and at sunrise. Good weather, much snow on glaciers and a summit view up to Piz Bernina. The way back to hut in the hot afternoon takes ages, especially after you climb the Vernaglwand. Anyway, the moments on summit are unforgetable.
September 21st 1988 - south route from the Oberettes hut
a nice day in fall, good conditions, pure pleasure
July 25th 1999 - north ridge from Weisskugel hut
It was a splendid day on the most beautiful of the normal routes. Many people on the summit from the different routes. The direct descent via the east side was a bit dangerous because of very soft snow. A perfect weekend trip!
