Summer Alpine Action

~ Tuesday 22nd August 2017

It's been a busy week at Frostguiding with a lot of climbing, so here's a suitably long blog...

After the big snowfalls 2 weeks ago the week started with a forecast of more bad weather to come - not a good sign. Happily the forecast was completely wrong! Conditions quickly turned good on a lot of routes and teams climbed Weissmies North Ridge, Lagginhorn South Ridge, Dent du Géant, Alphubel Rotgrat, Dent Blanche, Grand Combin, Tsalion West ridge, and a lot more.

We started on Allalinhorn with the traverse over the Feechopf for extra interest.

As the new forecast offered some hope we made the long climb to the Dent Blanche hut, and found perfect conditions. Phew!

By now the weather had settled, so after a "rest" day rock climbing, we made another long hut approach to Valsorey, ready for the Grand Combin.
