Grunegghorn (3,860m / 12,664 ft)

I’m not really a mountaineer, but one year I decided to go on a Moran Mountaineering summer course – called the Oberland Odyssey.  This was a 5 day trip, staying in mountain huts and involved walking down the Aletsch glacier, before attempting the highest peak in the Bernese Oberland, the Finsteraarhorn, (we got to within 300m of the top but turned back due to low cloud) and then climbing anything else on the way back…  That’s what got me into this situation (in August)…

I think my Gravatar, or whatever it’s called that comes up when I ‘Like’ something, shows me standing, in all my gear, at the far end of this precipitous ridge.
