GUIDING IN CHAMONIX
Last weekend and the first days of this week I had Mikkel and Petter for six days in Chamonix. We did’t have any special plans, just to climb some rock and some alpine routes. The weather was warm and windy the whole time and we spent most days with Aiguille du Midi as a starting point. We climbed rock on the south face of Eperon du Cosmique and on Arete Est on Pyramide du Tacul. Then we spent one night on the Torino hut and was planing to climb Dent du Geant the next day. But we had to turn back half way on the climb because of very strong wind. I think we could have continued to the top, but decided not to because of the risk of getting the rope stuck on the windy abseils. Then we spent one night at the Cosmique hut and climbed Chere couloir to the top of the Triangle and continued to the top of Mont Blanc the Tacul in beautiful weather. The two last days we had strong wind, rain and closed lifts so we ended up with one day og rescue training og rock and one on glacier.
