Interesting weather over the last few days. Massive hail that could really hunt - I needed my helmet at one point! Some big thunderstorms too. Its been snowing which, along with the mist, has mad some navigation difficult. First person this year up one of the mountains - there is a book to sign and the last person was last November. Another good hut last night with great food.
Overall, its been really tough going. 9 days now with 12 hours a day. Up between 5 and 6 every morning to get ready, off between 6 and 7, little rest, wet weather for 2/3rds of the day, all with a heavy pack. I will have to adjust my schedule!
