For the last few days I have been over in the Saas Grund and Saas Fee area. On sunday we did an Ecole De Glace session on the Trift Gletscher before staying at the Hosaas Hutte and climbing Weissmeis on monday. Currently, there is a good track on Weissmeis.

On tuesday we climbed the Allalinhorn from Saas Fee before descending to the Britannia Hutte. There was a large herd of Ibex on the approach to the hut and one large individual happily standing about twenty yards from the hut. The weather forecast was poor for wednesday so we had an early start and traversed the Hohlaub Gletscher, Allalin Gletscher and the Schwarxbergchopf before descending to Mattmark. The thuderstorm started a couple of hours later.
