Swiss National day and time for the annual fitness test up to the Weisshorn summit from Tschuggenhutte. Partly cloudy and somewhat warm at 61F, but rewarded with clear views at the top. Par time for me is 1hour (usual walking time around 1h 50min) and I have to remember to pace the first 1/3 because it gets gnarly later. Despite that went through Sattelhutte at 32 mins, but slowed up a tad on the final push to the top. Previous best (2018) was 59:15, so surprised to have blown that away, although my lungs were pretty good today. Nice cold Rivella rot to refresh at the summit and then down to Maran for lunch. I couldn’t help but recite the ANZAC eulogy “age shall not weary them...”.
