This weekend Anand and Mountain Guide Gary journeyed to Grindlewald, took the Jungfrau railway up through the Eiger and Monch to stay Saturday night @ 3600m in the Monchjoch hutte. Sunday they were able to ascend the Jungfrau, one of Switzerlands classic 4000m peaks. A little icy in places requiring excellent crampon technique. Well done Anand!
