Route description:

The friendliest rock climbing crag in the Chamonix valley, with a large number of rock climbs both single and multi pitch.

The climbs are all bolted and south facing so therefore dry quickly after rain. There are also a large number of very easy climbs that are suitable for “big boot” climbing whatever the weather. It can get hot and busy in mid summer, although there are some shady spots on the harder climbs.

In short, a great training venue, and one that we use regularly on all our trips, especially as there's a good cafe in the car park!

Back home after a pretty fantastic six day hut to hut ski tour in the southern alps.

Blue skies, powder and plenty of safe fresh tracks. Lots of opportunity to “earn your turns” - we clocked around 7000m of ascent over the week, despite some bad weather at the start.

Heads down into the wind...
In the southern French alps for a weeks hut to hut ski tour.

Weather definitely sub par today, but we had a good adventure looping up one valley, over the col and down to the hut.
