Another nice trip!
Thursday, 7 April 2022
A strange winter we are having, but here is Chamonix its not so bad but I had to cancel one trip as the weather was bad with lots of fresh snow which fell on to very bare conditions with lots of exposed crevasses and rock fall in some of the glacier banks. The PGHM were out most days rescuing ski mountaineers from crevasses. Since then we have had some big dumps of snow which have improved conditions but crevasses are opening up so its far from ideal around here in Chamonix.
On the summit of the Breithorn.

We had an awesome day on Saturday with Sunday being a total contrast. We were lucky enough to get climbs and skills covered both days.

Oh, I apologise as I've been very lazy about updating my blog!
Climbing conditions have not been great but storm Dudley and approaching storm Eunice seems to be bringing snow. We have been guiding all winter but its not been great conditions but having said that its always experience enhancing!!

Quite wintry! Some good climbing above 600 m which is around the base of or main climbing crags.

We are enjoying the fine summer weather here and hoping that it continues. I was out this morning climbing with Freya again, who has made amazing progress on sport and traditional climbing. We finished our day on 6b+. We are taking bookings for beginners rock climbing, transition from indoor gym climbing to the outdoors, sport and traditional climbing skills. As always we are open for private guiding, walking, climbing, mountaineering and ridge scrambles.

I had the good fortune to instruct some rock climbing with Freya and Dave the other day at Comic Crag, after some instruction Freya impressively led her first rock climb...
