We left Gruben about 10:30pm on Friday night and drove up to Vorder Sänntum, parked and walked along the lakes to Turtmannhütte SAC, in a beautiful rainy and foggy and occasionally starry night.

On Saturday morning we went from Turtmannhütte SAC through Gässi up to Üssers Barrhorn. Luckily, it was not raining much, otherwise some bits would be slipperly and too challenging on the slopes. At the top we didn't get much visibility and it was quite fresh.
