riding up thru Grindelwald toward the Wetterhorn mountain

north face of the Fiescherhorn above the Lower Grindelwald glacier

getting closer to the Wetterhorn which is next to the Grosse Scheidegg pass

road bends north toward the Schwarzhorn

south to the Schreckhorn peak above the Upper Grindelwald glacier


looking back down to Grindelwald, with the Lauberhorn + Tchuggen peaks above on the right horizon -- a little right of center between Eiger and Lauberhorn is a dark green pass with a snowy ridge beyond it -- that pass is called "Kleine Scheidegg" - (it's higher than the Grosse Scheidegg pass)

the north face of the Eiger peak -- Ken once climbed the Eiger by the jagged narrow ridge called "Mitteleggi" on the left of the summit, staying above the north face

up here normal motor vehicle traffic is not permitted on the road, mainly only special buses -- so lots of people just walk on the road

under the Wetterhorn, getting close now to the Grosse Scheidegg pass

west to the Mönch and Eiger peaks -- though the Mönch is behind, it's actually a little higher than the Eiger

Sunny snow of the Fiescher glacier below the Mönch peak.

Grosse Scheidegg pass, with its mountain hut/hotel and the Wellhorn mountain beyond
