Sounds like some of the Swiss huts I was in. The drunk Germans would finally stop singing just about the time we would have to get up. The worst was to find a drunk one in the toilet who wouldn't leave and was too loaded to make the traverse back in to the hut by himself anyway.

The drunk Germans sounds a lot like the Iliniza hut last year. We had tents with us, and weren't smart enough to set them up outside where we could sleep in peace and quiet.

On a brighter note, here is the mountain we climbed this past weekend. We climbed Cerro Mirador del Morado, which is in the foreground. The two peaks in the background are the south and north peaks of Cerro Morado. BTW, the south peak )the left in this photo) is 5.10 rock, bad and poorly protected, according to reports, and known as the "Eiger of Chile."

Trailhead is about two hours from my house.

Closer to home, here's an old photo of the first winter ascent of the N face of Mt Borah, ID. Note the Zero axe/alpine hammer combination.
