Jagihorn, South ridge

 Phil climbing.
Nice guiding work when you can get it!

An ace  Swiss summit and we had time to catch the last lift up to the Brittania hut. The day was also the first anniversary  since Rick and I summited Nanga Parbat via the Mazeno.... at least a year later we are not having to snow cave at 7600m without food or water!
