Chamonix Climb and Ski

Dave and I were climbing and skiing around Chamonix last week. It was a very brief visit and we wanted to stay local so our options were limited. The skiing was very good after the recent snowfalls, but access to the ice climbing was less than ideal and a lot of the climbing in this and other areas was under too much snow. We climbed several routes at the Crémerie and the Argentiere Left Bank and had one day skiing. Dave had done a lot of skiing in the military in the past but it was his first time on skis for 20 years! Like riding a bike, it soon came back and by the end of the day we were off piste in the trees with ideas about trying some ski touring in the future!
