Weissmies (4017m) Valais, Switzerland

I climbed Weissmies (4017m) via the South Ridge from the Almageller Hut to the summit and then down the valley to Saas Fee. The route is rated PD or UIAA II.  The summit ridge was one of the best bits. Awesome exposure on either side. This was my first summit in the Alps. I also climbed the Dri Horlini near the Almageller Hut.

What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to live. That is what life means and what life is for. – George Mallory
