Hello from the Saas Almageller Hutte.
The team over the past 3 days has had a successful start to the trip. Yesterday the team climbed the Dri Hornli and worked on technical rock skills at around 3000m.
This morning the team departed the hut at 4am and climbed up the south ridge of the Weissmess. This long alpine ridge route simulates sections of the Matterhorn. It is excellent training and a worthy 4000m peak.
The team is doing great and feeling strong. We shared a bottle of Pinot in the afternoon to celebrate our successful day.
Tomorrow we will head down to Zermatt and enjoy some hot showers and good food.
Here are a couple pictures from the field.
