Absolutely beautiful, also in the summer! The way up was quite demanding, there's a lot of stairs and since it rained the day before, the way up was very very muddy. Definitely better to walk on the mud up rather than down. Beautiful environment and views on every step of the way and nice firm pathway on the way down. We also took the shortcut at Alpe-Alp and with breaks it took us a bit over 4 hours. Thank you for the great hike!
