Liskamm Traverse

Neil, Jane, Lewis and myself are just back from a great days ‘spacewalking’ – traversing Liskamm from East to West.  This was the first day the Liskamm ascent had been made since fresh snow on Sunday, so a very delicate to start on the E Ridge – but from the East summit onwards to the West Summit and down was much easier, due to other teams traversing in the opposite direction. 

We started the week with a ‘warmup’ traverse of the Midi-Plan and it’s still possible to descend down to the Requin Hut from the Aiguille du Plan by the way.  Yet more snow falling today, but less in Valais so we’re heading back to Zermatt tomorrow with a plan to climb the Matterhorn if conditions are Ok.
