Le Merdasson

above Montreux, Switzerland


Le Merdasson is a little knob at 1858m just next to the Dent de Jaman, overlooking the Montreux -- Rochers de Naye train line. It pokes up on the little ridge between the Dent de Jaman and the Rochers de Naye, between the Lake Geneva view and the Montagne d'Amont leading out to the north.

This is Ms Wilson, 14 November 1981, still marching straight uphill towards Le Merdasson just a few hours out from home in Les Avants

Leaving Merdasson, 1981

Dr Peck and his excellent new FILA jacket, which served him very well at fancy-dress balls and for sleeping in snowcaves in when necessary for the next 15 years or so.
