Yes, the views were awesome!

Into the mist

Snowdrift crossing - neither Rachel nor I are much of a fan of these

The clouds lift briefly for some views of the peaks

Start of the cable section

More cable

Snowdrifts near Passo Ball

Looking down the descent to Rifugio Pradidali

Warm and dry and well fed!

Rifugio Pradidali

Peaks in the mist

Lake Pradidali

Heading up the valley

Rifugio Pradidali perched on the side of the valley

The weather rolls in...

Snowdrifts higher up in the valley

Rachel climbing the slippery snowdrift

Near Passo Pradidali Basso


...and more snow. I piked on this one and scrambled down on the rocks!

Rachel (the speck in the upper right) takes the (actual) route on the other side of the valley

In sight of the Rifugio Rosetta and cable car

A convenient verandah on which to strip out of wet gear and get changed
