Looking down on the clouds which are rolling in over Piz Lunghin. We were sitting on the top of the Grevasalvas pillar watching this as the sun was setting. A spectacular view and only a slight concern about the descent…
The north face of Grandes Jorasses, photographed from close to the Couvercicle Hut.
Always an impressive mountain, this time photographed from the glacier close to the SE face of Tour Ronde. We did two small climbs, the traverse of Aiguilles d’Entreves and the SE ridge of Tour Ronde and since no huts were open we spent the night in a tent. Bivying has definitely the added benefit of being able to watch how the light is changing.
After a stormy night in the Cosmiques hut we woke up to a beautiful morning. While spindrift made us abandon the Chere gully after two pitches, we had a truly superb ski down the Valle Blanche.
Cold and white start of the 2012 ski touring season. Headed up towards Elgåhogna on telemark skis but no summit this time. Even on known terrain and low altitude the mountain decides.
