One shot from last year

posted on 26th of february, 2010

Recently I got the MR for the shown image. My friend and I were mountaineering in the Bernese Highlands in Switzerland. This shot was done about 150 meters away from the summit of Monch, a 4000-meter-peak, we are standing on the last ridge to summit, that was 40 to 30 cm wide and partly even narrower, on every side of the ridge the face was falling down several hundred dizzying meters. Both of us were afraid to fall down but finally we made it to summit.
It was a great, great day in late summer, slightly over 0°C, clear blue sky free of clouds. And the best: we didn't use a car, all we needed was a bike and a train to get in the heart of Berner Oberland!!
