A long climb from Murren, but the hardest part was at the beginning. A welcome halfway stop at the Schilthorn Hut, then a beautiful lake, followed by an exposed arete just before the summit presented little difficulty thanks to a fixed cable. Great views on the way up, but cloudy at summit [an early start is recommended to avoid this]. Still, it was worth the effort for my first [nearly-] 10,000 footer. And I got to eat a superb sundae ice-cream in the revolving summit restaurant, although the situation seemed bizarre having climbed all that way. Even more bizarre was the summit cinema showing excerpts from a James Bond film featuring Telly Savalas! Who loves ya, baby?
