Tues 29. [29 July 1902] Off soon after 1 and walked through the pine
woods in lovely moonlight. Had to wait till daybreak on the moraine at
the foot of the rocks. Then scrambled up onto the first glacier but to
our bitter disappointment found that we cd not get from it onto the rock
above. The only crack was one down which the seracs fell. So
turned back and got in for breakfast. Robert Gerard and Lily went up
King's Peak and did not return till 2 AM next day. The Vere O'Briens
came over from Grindelwald. I sent my guides down to Innertkirchen
and walked down at 6.30 myself; Dot coming part of the way. Got to
the B‰r at 8 and went to bed.
