and so to one of the higher tarns. We shouldn't be here. We should have turned West before this. Is the curse of Cnicht striking again? I have climbed Cnicht once on my own many years ago, but subsequently have attempted it twice with three of the members of the present party. The first time we were turned back by deep snow drifts and the second by torrential rain. This time the weather is hot and humid but the views are good yet we have managed to miss our route.
