REPORT:

It was a great hike.

We walked 11.7 km. The hike began at 10:00 and ended at 13:21. The trails were in excellent conditions. We were wearing crampons. But a good hiking boot would have sufficed. The temperature was -8°C and the winds SSE 35 km/h. Because of that chilly wind we waited to be back at the pavilion before having lunch.

Recommendation:

In winter take a short break at each summit to rest and have a granola bar. If it is cold wait to be back at the pavilion to have lunch.
