An interesting Haute Route
Well, back in Chamonix this afternoon after descending from the Vignettes hut in bad conditions early this morning. My friend Benoit Profit a guide from Grenoble was there with his group and in the same proverbial boat!!! We shared navigation legs and spacing out our two groups helped a lot with "mapping the terrain" in the almost white out conditions. We have done OK though and my group are happy enough as we have had a tough, challenging trip with lots of navigation but also some amazing turns, fine snow and some good weather windows which gave inspiring views.
Approaching the Pas de Chat. ( We were so pleased just how good the weather turned out to be that day, but snow conditions were interesting!)
