Stood on top of this magnificent mountain after a steady 4,5 hour climb over the Hornli ridge.

A bit crowded at The Roof but big fun when standing on the summit and looking into the Swiss

and Italian valleys.

Have to say this was the first mountain which took me longer to descend than to ascend!

Be prepared for a very long descent where it's often very difficult to stay on the right track

(and not to end up in one of the mountain's steep faces...)
