Ascent Trip Report

Ascent with cable car from Alagna, Italy, to Punta Indren. Slept (?) overnight in the Gnifetti Hut and had an alpine start up the mountain. Fog when reaching the summit. Some lunch in the hut. Eva and Hasse didn't feel well - didn't acclimatized well. The guide left us by the Gnifetti Hut on the way down - he had some new clients to attend.
With now about ten years of experience since this climb, I would say that this behavior by a guide have I never seen since!
