Today showed some unsettled weather in the mountains so Kenny and I opted for a day with a light rucksack and hands covered in chalk.  We headed into Grindlewald and climbed the 450m 13 pitch route of Sagittarius (6b) in Gelmerfluh.  It is a fantastic route with plenty of bolts to aim for.  Immaculate granite slabs keep the concentration levels high and had some fantastic pitches on which would be much better if there were no bolts and a small trad rack was carried.  An ace route, well worth seeking out.  From the top we made 6 abseils off fantastic ab stations and a quick wander back to the van.  What a day!
