However we were soon off the tricky rocky section and onto the glacier itself following the trail across and over to the seracs on the right hand side, easily bypassing any crevasses on the way.
After the interesting section throught the seracs (more pictures from the way down later), we soon on the broad ridge leading up to the summit.
The track just went up and up with a few slightly flatter sections, but most of the time we could see the final summit section looming ahead.
As it got higher and a little steeper most teams started to slow down and as the weather improved we took the opportunity to take more photo's, if only to have a rest!

Serious mountaineer pose.
Cheesy summit pose at 4023m on the summit of the Weissmies.

The snow ridge along to the foresummit; the route we would've come along by, had we stayed at the Allmagellar Hut on the other side of the Weissmies.
Fantastic view of the seracs and a huge snow cave from above.
And the snow cave on further inspection. Note the route of the track above it.
Heading back across the Trift Glacier and a better view of some of the big crevasses.
