 All change again this week. The weather at the end of last week has left a lot of snow high up - apparently 120cm at the Margherita hut - but even lower down things are plastered. We walked over a snowy Pas de Chevre to the Dix hut, then made a challenging ascent of the Mont Blanc de Cheilon. Totally dry last week , the difference was hard to believe. Snowy mixed climbing up the ridge, then knee deep ploughing up to a very snowy summit ridge.
