 After a tiring Monday in Mauvoisin we decided to have a more relaxing day on Tuesday. A chilly but very enjoyable training session at the excellent ice boulder by the Hotel de la Tsa filled the morning, followed by a very nice lunch in the hotel. 

Refuelled with cheese and rosti and full of renewed enthusiasm we set off up the left hand variation of the Arolla tunnel route in teh afternoon. This is much steeper than the central line and provides 3 big pitches, and a just-before-dark finish, all the time being watched by a very brave chamois.
