Preparing the pack before the first day out

Simon, our friendly guide on the climb through great conditions

Rob finding his way through the trees

First drop down. Simon's track left, Rob's center, SerreChe's right

Shadows and light in the backcountry

Rob entering through the "tree cave". Some tight trees indeed. You need to know your way though

Getting out of the tree cave

Top of the cable car. Pretty cold up here. Looks like the inside of a freezer

Our next hike on the menu. We have to break trail in rather deep snow before reaching the top of the ridge
