Coming down from Alphubel
On the way down we decided to take some more pictures just after we finished our descend of the steepest section of the ridge. This and the following three slides show our little victory celebration. The weather was really improving now. This was my fifth 4000-er in the Swiss Alps. I did four of them with and thanks to Maya and the most difficult one with Maya and Maurice who led us to the top of Hohberghorn. Here are all the summits in chronological order:

Breithorn, 4165m - 1994
Hohberghorn, 4219m - 1998
Lagginhorn, 4010m - 1998
Allalinhorn, 4027m - 1999
Alphubel, 4206m - 1999

And one more 4000-er of a different kind, native of New Mexico, and the highest summit here

Wheeler Peak, 4011m - 1994
