Escaping from the Mountains!

Escaping from the Mountains!

The weather has been rather unstable this summer so I escaped to Finale for some rock climbing this past week. We managed a few days in the high mountains, but were eventually stormed off! Mike went from never having rock climbed (Day 1) to seconding multi-pitch 6a+ (Day 2) to leading pitches at grade 5 on Day 3! A great effort, I think he might be bitten by the climbing bug! 


Success on Mont Blanc!

Success on Mont Blanc with Mountain Tracks

This week Emma and John summited Mont Blanc. Despite poor weather at the beginning of the week we managed to acclimatise in the Refugio Torino. Traversing the Vallée Blanche was really atmospheric due to drifting cloud, mist and no track. The summit days were perfect with light winds, warm temperatures and perfect sunshine.

What an experience, by far the best days of the summer so far!
