Jo and I stopped at Marjelensee, waiting for the others to catch up, and they weren't far behind.
The glacier wall is immense but it differed from the previous year, and looked unstable. There was fresh collapse on the edge and I was nervous when Jon put on his crampons and went up between a crevasse in the side, rather than take my advice and get onto it from a higher, safer route.
Late lunch at the Gletscherstube Hut, a particularly good version of Rosti, and then we had a shortcut through the tunnel back to the cable car.
