The loneliest job in Switzerland...

This video initially caught our eye because of the Exped pack the guy is wearing (Work and Rescue Pack is similar to the Drypack WB 30 available in North America starting in February 2010). But after getting it translated we realized we had to post it here on the blog for other reasons. For those of you who don't speak German, the story is essentially about this guy who has the loneliest job in Switzerland. He hangs out at this hut observing the glacier and making notes. Apparently there is enough concern about a catastrophic event that it warrants such a job. Having visited Grindelwald, we agree that it should be protected, whatever the sacrifices!
