It got a bit chilly on the fingers this morning - rock climbing at 3000m after some snow overnight. We carried rock shoes but kept the big boots on all the way, just for the warmth :)
The Cabane d'Orny is a great hut, friendly, traditional and tons of accessible rock right out the back door. Planning on doing more there next summer.

Back up high after the weekends storms. Found some nice consolidated snow for a mini north face training climb. Feels quiet after the August crowds.
