Alpine Shuffling

What a drive!

26hrs of near non stop driving took us from a seriously wet Scotland to a blue sky and very sunny Switzerland. A few hours sleep in the van then it was straight up high to acclimatize. Two 4000m peaks (Alphubel & Allalinhorn) in an afternoon and a bivi at 3900m did the trick. We are now sat in SAAS Fee drinking a cool beer and planning our next mission.

Conditions look mega so we are heading up tomorrow to look at the Matterhorn, fingers crossed we will not be breathing to hard above 4000m and conditions are as good as they look?

Got to go as this is costing me a million Swiss Franks a minute. Will let you know how we get on…….

Here’s a shot of the Matterhorn from a ski tour in April.
