Mer de Glace galcier, ice skills day

Rainy day in Chamonix after days of incredible warmth and sunshine. Still we had good day on the Mer de Glace, doing basic ice skills such as crampon technique and ice climbing.
Below is Basil, 10 years of age showing that you do not have to be an ancient mountain guide to be an effective ice climber!

Happy days after a busy and adventurous day on the Mer de Glace!
