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!

Last lift accessed ski tour of (my) season from Contamines yesterday.

Plenty of folk out enjoying the good conditions on the classics.

A weeks holiday away from the mountains now. Rest time before the @trofeomezzalama race at the end of the month.

A big couple of days on the wild Miage glacier taking advantage of the great spring ski touring conditions.

Up Mont Tondu and then today over the Miage after a night in the Conscrits refuge. Which served a vegetarian meal to the whole hut last night, meaning it’s now my favourite refuge. 🌱

Over 3500m of ascent and some very good snow on the way down.

Well the express Haute Route didn’t exactly go to Plan. A meter of fresh snow at altitude put paid to that.

We headed south and spent a great couple of days around the Mont Thabor area. Nice hut, quiet and loads of good skiing. Despite the cloud.
