A short day

July 29th

Itinerary:  Grossalp to Cimalmotto

Distance:  9,4 km
Time:  3 hours
Vertical distance:  420 m uphill;  890 m downhill

Peter and Nona walked down to Bosco / Gurin for a good buffet breakfast in the hotel (Nona had done this yesterday).  I could not walk down so went by chairlift at 8.30 a.m.  No pharmacy in the village but managed to get some ibufren off the hotel first aid box, also a bandage from the minute local Coop.  Used wi-fi to partially update website blog.

Weather:  windy and rainy most of the day.  This and the state of my knee precluded any summit attempts.

At midday Peter and I took the chairlift back to the hut, collected our things and walked over the Quadrella Pass to Cimalmotto where we had reserved accommodation.  Nona went there by car.  My knee – bandaged – held out quite well.

Night: Munt la Reita agroturismo, Cimalmotto
