It's warm, you want to climb though, some higher altitudes might help : pics.
Putting into practise alpine techniques. Pics there
This was a putting into practise day on rock for the team. We climbed a combination of the granite routes "mort de rire" and the southern ridge on this 3059 m high needle. Pics
The team saw different aspects of technique and safety over two days, such as rock and ice climbing, managing an anchor, abseiling, crevasse rescue... Pics
Still some mist around Chamonix today. Pics here . Ann and Peter found dry rocks though on this beautiful classical route named "Cocher cochon".
This 2589 m. summit isn't far from the lifts. Felix and Peter climbed "Les violons Tziganes", offering sustained pitches around the grade 5c / 6a. Pics
Peter and Felix chose the gneiss rock route "Poême à Lou". Thanks to the cable car, the approach takes half an hour, for 5 fantastic sustained vertical pitches. Pics
Les Miss route, with Misses Corinne and Ariane. 650 m, grade 5c maximum, on excellent rock with varied styles. Pics
A couple of 4500 m in Stephan's and Simon's memories today : the Zumsteinspitze and the Gnifetti point. Pics
All the team on top for that route mostly offering glacier hiking. Correct freezing conditions. Pics
Above Sallanches on a limestone monolith. With Claire, Paul and Rémi, Mont Blanc, Bionnassay needle, Domes de Miage in the background. Pics
The amount of sun isn't so important than this of fresh snow these time... Pics here
Good conditions for that remote route. Pics. Approach and return on skis.
Darcy had left his touring gear at home, we managed to ski fresh tracks several days after the last snow fall though, for a part of two runs. All the pics
First visit in Italy for some in the team. The top of Arp is at 2700 m, no glacier there but remote and wild runs. Pics
Adam, Elliot and Matthew used the lifts first before hiking higher than 3000 m. Pics
This place allows nice tree skiing, with great views of the higher mountains. (Available with the unlimited pass). Pics
Boys day out, 2 dads and 2 sons. Pics
Good date booked for Alice, Stein, Bob and Brian. A bit of wind on top. Pics
