Swiss 3000's Part II

After leaving Zermatt we headed to the small village of St Luc for the second half of our Swiss 3000 week. A short bus and train ride saw us arrive mid afternoon after a lovely walk down from the Hornli Hut in the morning. We then headed up to the Cabane Bella Tolla where we had the luxury of free hot showers and some fantastic food once again. The next morning we rose early and climbed Bella Tolla (3025m) before descending back to the valley for a restaurant lunch. We then climbed up to the Cabane Becs de Bossons at 2980m for our final night. This hut has been refurbished since I last visited it and had a beaitiful glazed viewing room to make the most of the stunning views from Mont Blanc in one direction to the Weishorn in the other.
Our final morning saw us tick off the Pointe de la Tsevalire (3026m) and then the more scrambley Becs de Bossons (3149m) to finish a cracking week. Thanks all!
