The Alps, before the Haute Route

I’ve spend almost a month in the Alps, near Chamonix. The idea was to do a lot of climbing and then go and do the Haute Route with my parents. It turned out that I did very little climbing. Because of the weather we only attempted three routes. One was great, the other turned into snow-plodding, spindrifting, avalanching nightmare and the last one didn’t have thick enough ice for my liking.

Still, that meant that a lot of skitouring and maths got done. I won’t bother anyone with the latter, but there are few pictures from skiing trips. (As usual if you click on the big photograph then you get to see more pictures).
