I should know, we got up to 3350m on it in 2016, over 2 days!

It was too hard for us to summit it that time, tho. It's one of the most amazing mountains.

Quite proud of our attempt, tho it was a killer - 11 hour day, starting at 4:45am.

"Failed attempt on the Wetterhorn, 3692m, it was too hard, high & loose, and we weren't fit or prepared enough.

Last out of hut at 4:45am, and stayed last, turned round at 8:35am, when all hope was lost.

Got to 3320m. Hut at 2317m.
Since found out it's AD / III not "PD". So we were really a bit stuffed!
Agony descending to Grindelwald for an eleven hour day. Ouch.
