      A gentle climb up the Col du corbier in the dry before the heavens opened and we got soaked on the way down on technical trails, full of slippy switchbacks and greasy roots. I kept the heart rate low though for recovery after yesterday. 😬

      Close but no cigar. We set off at 02:30 to make sure we had hard snow conditions for the climb and also so we could try and avoid the storm that was due to roll in the afternoon. The climbing went well and we made 1000m vert in around 3 hours and we’re treated to a beautiful sunrise over Chamonix and the surrounding peaks. We kept climbing until we had to take skis off and crampons on towards the Refuge Vallot. At this point the sky was getting darker and a strong westerly wind was blowing the storm in. We decided to continue up the final arret towards the summit, but unfortunately around 8:30 the storm hit us. The visibility went to zero and the wind was well above 60kph. Not safe to be on a ridge line at 4600m.At this point we made the decision to turn around for safety and retraced our steps back down the glacier and to Chamonix. All in the rain and some very challenging snow conditions! A great adventure and we learnt a lot. The summit will have to wait for next time.

      Up into the 4000m peaks! We got round a few but ended up coming back ‘early’ as the weather changed and we got caught in a big storm! Safety back to the refuge.

      The start of our adventure. Parked at 1800 and hiked with skis on our packs for an hour to reach the snow. The slow and steady up through the high alpine pastures to Refuge Gnefetti at 3600. We both got hit with altitude and carry big bags in the heat but the views were worth it.
