Corma di Machaby setorre Casa Fara, Italy

Alex on the 5a pitch
Pouring rain in Chamonix today so we beat it through the Mont Blanc tunnel and once west of Aosta we found dry rock. A technical day coaching rock climbing and belaying skills. This climb is the 10 pitch 300m Lo Dzerby first ascent in 1992 by T. Sacchet and C. Prina

Alex on the 5c pitch
We enjoyed perfect weather on this multi pitched climb, then drove back and encountered a two hour tail back at the Mont Blanc tunnel and very wet weather in Courmayeur. I have just had news that they have had to stop the North Face ultra - around Mont Blanc race - due to a landslide!
