    Hi and thanks for uploading these. Can I ask how was the trip to Theodul hut. Did you travel from trockensteg and was the route clear. Did you use a guide or need to carry ropes?

    I am taking some friends and wish to be sure.

    regards

    Hi We walked from Resy to Theodul Hut, via Plan Maison and the Theodul-Pass.
    see this map…
    It was quite poor weather when we did it; with rain, thick new snow, and some fog too. see photo….

    We did not use a guide and did not need a rope to get up to the Theodul Hut, however we did use a rope to walk down the glacier from Theodul Hut to Trockensteg (even though it is supposed to quite a safe glacier, we didn’t take the risk)

    Have a good trip
    phil
