We were a group of eight people this year, and with the two complete rope teams we were ready to tackle the glaciers of Bernese Alps. The trip was inspired by the fine pictures from the Nizhniy Novgorod team, which did a very similar route back in 2014. However, the very thin snow cover this year, heavily crevassed glaciers and tight schedule made our trip harder and more exhausting than we anticipated. Nonetheless, we really enjoyed the trip, and the area of Bernese Alps is absolutely amazing!
