Photographer's Note

The Gnifetti hut at altitude 3611m is commonly used as a one to three day pitstop before making an attempt to climb Monte Rosa (4633m). Getting accustomed to the altitude is crucial for a succesful climb, however the sensitivity to high altitude varies from person to person; it is not just a question of being in good shape.

You might recognise the climber from my upload from yesterday 'Walk the Clouds'. This picture is my favourite from this trip, I hope you will enjoy it too.
