The North Ridge

 

The North Ridge

The main objective of our trip to Switzerland (apart from beer) was the awesome north ridge of the Piz Bedile. It is one of the purest lines in the Alps, following the line between light and dark. It was an epic climb, the ascent was flawless and we made good time. The descent took us much longer than we thought, and there was a moment as the sun was setting where the fear set in. However once night had set in we just slowed down, did everything very carefully and continued our descent. We reached the glacier at the  bottom just before sun up, feeling delirious and tired.
