Going for a look...

A brief overnight stop at
Lake Maggiore until the rain caught up and had us heading to Sass Grund. Overnight at the Heino and late start to check out the Alphubel for the following day. As often is the case the uplift system takes you above the clouds and with mixed conditions we headed for the Alphubeljoch (3782m) to stretch our legs. Moving well and feeling comfortable in the misty conditions we headed for the normal route on the Allalinhorn (4027m), We had climbed this peak by its more technical and longer Hohlaubgrat route 3 years ago and used the normal route for descent. We had the summit to ourselves for 10 mins before an other party arrived in time to take some pics.
