We did a lot of "Slightly Steeper" skiing this week, so it's a two-part blog...

Climbing out of the clouds on Mont Rouge

Skinning the top slope. Pigne d'Arolla and Mont Blanc de Cheilon in the background

Fine views of the Perroc, Dent Blanche, Tsalion and Tsa

David's birthday turns!

We'd been lucky with the weather all week, but Friday our luck ran out. Having already switched to plan B to avoid the clouds, we skinned up the Pallanche de la Cretta in deteriorating conditions.

It's not all blue skies...

On the same week last year we came up here hoping to ski the north gully below the summit, and today we were frustrated again. Maybe next year!

The summit... I think.
