Ice Climbing

~ Saturday 28th February 2009

An excellent week of climbing. Starting in Arolla - 2 days with lots of snow at la Gouille and l'Usine Électrique - we had a "rest day" skiing then went over to Kandersteg where conditions are still great. We climbed Heizahn, Rattenpissoir and Arbonium - a fantastic 3 days. It's late season in Kandersteg but the ice is still superb and there are very few teams climbing.
