After yesterday's 10 hour day at Trugberg NE Face, I was looking for a relaxing short route and to go home.

Monch SE Ridge (normal route) is an objectively safe climb, a very popular one, route finding is easy. I enjoyed it, we were on the summit in about 2 h 15 mins, spent a very relaxing time on the summit on a perfect sunny day. Back to the hut in about the same time as ascent.

The main objective of this trip was to make great photos, because when you do a technical route near your limits, you are so much focused on the climb that taking pictures isn't a priority. Apparently we were successful, so here you go, enjoy the pictures :)

I have had a good, safe 2011 summer season with about a dozen peaks from PD to D+ and I feel very satisfied with it. With this, I plan to take a break from Alpine stuff for a while. So if you don't see me writing more reports, don't worry about my safety :)
