Corno-Griess and its hut

After a 4 hour hike down into Airolo and up Val Bedretto, we reached Capanna Corno-Griess. Its architecture is surprising and, looking back towards it the next day, it looked a bit like a spaceship.
The weather forecast was for storms from about 2 pm, so we had an early start. Menacing clouds were pouring in from Italy as we reached Corno pass and Griess lake.
We found shelter in Fiesch and decided to stay there 2 nights, while the stormy front passed.

 

Après 4 heures de descente sur Airolo et la remontée du Val Bedretto, nous avons atteint la cabane Corno-Griess. Son architecture est surprenante et, en la voyant de loin le lendemain, elle ressemblait un peu à un vaisseau spatial.
La météo nous ayant promis des orages dès 14 heures, nous sommes partis tôt. Des nuages menaçants arrivaient d’Italie alors que nous arrivions au col.Corno et descendions vers le lac Griess.
Nous avons trouvé refuge à Fiesch, où nous avons passé 2 nuits en attendant que le front d’orages passe.
