Snowfall at the end of July and the first days in August is not uncommon at high altitude, but in this intensity it cancelled our original plan. Looking for a reasonable alternative, we ended up with the climbing of Rimpfischhorn and the traverse of Dufourspitze, the highest peak on swiss territory.
