Ascent Trip Report

I was travelling around Europe the summer after college with two friends. We stayed in Switzerland for a few days: Interlaken, Luzerne and then Geneva. We went up to the Jungfraujoch station by rail, tramway and cog. There was no summit attempt. The station is listed as 11,332'.
My recollection of the trip up is foggy, but I remember coming out of the cogway into snow covered terrain. We were in full cloud cover, so there really weren't any views. When we were down in Interlaken we could see paragliders soaring off of the local peaks.
