Climbing on the l'Aiguilles, Chamonix, Mont Blanc.

A great adventure.. again!

Superb feelings as we crested the ridge into the sun.

Nice climbing in Chamonix.

 As the light comes in we climb the first straight-forward ice pitches, with Corrine Maisano.
In the dark, its here!
Corrine at the lux bivi at Plan de l'Aiguille the evening before.
