The Weisshorn - just over 4500m high, and reputedly one of the more serious 4000m peaks in the Alps. No lifts or trains for help either - the ascent is all on foot, 3100m from the carpark in Randa to the summit. Complex route-finding, loose rock, BIG exposure and a serious snow finish make it a classic Alpine experience! After all that we reached the summit in thick cloud so there was no view!
