Chamonix Climbing

~ Tuesday 10th April 2012

 A change of activity this week...The weather wasn't helpful on Sunday, meaning all we managed was a ride up the Grands Montets lift for a coffee - the café at the top was full of people waiting in vain for  the forecast improvement. 

Monday was better though. After the usual "service with a scowl" from the Midi staff, we were soon up the lift and snowshoeing over for a great traverse of the Pointe Lachenal. 

Tuesday and the Midi staff were still grumpy - can the end of season not come soon enough for them?  - but we climbed the Cosmiques Arete in more wild and windy weather.
