Swiss Granite - Yummy

Back to Handegg, it has been a while (seven years) and despite the showery weather, it is great to be back. Visits to both the Susten Pass and the Grimsel Pass to sample the climbing have been great - there is still a lot of snow about and many wet streaks on the big slabs, but there is still plenty to go at. Hikes into Eldorado and through the Aarschluct Gorge were also grand, the visit to a dentist in Meiringen for a root-canal filling less so. Not that it was especially painful, I just haven't had the bill yet! (Finally got the bill 635 Swiss Francs - now that really did hurt!)

Hi, you used to climb with my uncle David (Hobbs). I have a few old climbing shots of him - will get them scanned in one and and send them over - may be some old faces you reconise or mountains!

I remember Dave well. We are in Switzerland at the moment - where we climbed together in the 1970s.
