edge was rather steep and to make matters worse had quite a lot of snow on it.

I was just as glad to set foot upon the trail again as I had been after crossing the Meidpass a few days before. A mere 10 minutes later, we reached our destination of the Hornli hut, only 20 minutes slower than the projected 2 hours and 10 minutes.
