Piz da Lech
What a view!
Rachel on the approach to the bottom of the ferrata
Happily, we find we are far from the only one who are silly enough to be out given the weather
Rachel in something that looks suspiciously like sun!
Yes, it is sunny (though just a brief error in the weather, which returns to its usual overcast situation pretty quickly)
Rachel in the short flat section between the steep bits - you can see the next steep bit coming up
Climbers behind us emerge from the cloud
Rachel waiting for the ladders to free up
Looking back down the route at the nearby knife edge pinnacle
Look mum! No hands!
Rachel on the summit
Still on the summit. Note the change of outfit!
Looking across to Lech de Pisciadu, and our descent route in a couple of days time
Views up the valley
Other climbers barely visible on the ladder pitch
Rachel on a short stemple section on the descent route
Back at the bottom, traversing under the cliffs
Where I think the route went! The ladders are just after the wiggle
Chairlift ride back down the mountain
Not sure what happens if you park your bike in the wrong one!
The fireworks for Ferragosto (Assumption Day) were right outside our window
