My guiding exams were approaching quickly (8-9.01), the first part was to be “ice and mixed climbing and glacier travel”. I figured I have not really been climbing much in winter since I moved to Switzerland, hence I needed to practice. Luigi and Mark were going to Pontresina to do some easy climb and were nice enough to take me with them.
The drive is definitelly not worth it unless you spent there at least two days. Nevertheless since it was Luigi who was driving it was OK. It’s like 2h30min drive from Zurich.
We did a small climb probably around 200m. It was good to touch ice and to start becoming more familiar with it once again.
Forecast was initially predicting overcast, but around 11am we got sun, it was warm and really nice.
Thanks guys !
