Alpine Update

Aiguille Verte Summit 3

Late June has been really great here in the Alps. Sam and I made a successful ascent of Mont Blanc by the Gouter Route. Then Dave and I had 3 days rock climbing on Voie Caline, Mille et une Pattes and Voie Frison-Roche. We then had a day off before heading up to the Couvercle Hut and climbing the Aiguille Verte by the Whymper Couloir, which was in excellent condition. We wound down on the Cosmiques Ridge to end the week and Dave hopes to return later in the season to try the Zmutt. To end the month of June Rebekah and I went up to Les Chéserys and had a really nice afternoon on Un Père Noël pour Lucy.

There are photos of all these routes here, and please also visit UKC and vote on the Whymper photos I posted this week.

Good climbing!
