Lots of different mountaineering and climbing lately. Monterosa massif, Mont Blanc and Ceuze have been some of the visited sites. Had a great summit push on Mont Blanc last week from the lift of aguille du midi in the morning. Did Three 4000 mt peaks from the Gniffetti hut with Wolfgang and clients. Also went down to Ceuze to do some sport climbing with friends. Today we are leaving for Mont viso, 3831m, in the south of Italy. Another new mountain that’s been on the list for a while… ciao.
Just down in the valley after 6 days of alpine climbing. Started off in Switzerland traversing over to France. Then a heavy schedule with Gran paradiso (4000 m peak in italy) and directly up to Mt Blanc. Working with Robbie Fenlon at Wilderplaces this week we had good weather and great clients from Ireland. 8 out of 7 clients made it to the summit and the additional summit guides where Matt Farmer (US), John Bracey (GB) and Neil Hitchings (GB). All the guides with Chamonix as home base. Cheers
Back in Chamonix after a trip down to Ceuse and some sport climbing. Had two great days down there with friends and when it started to rain we whent back up to chamonix. Managed to get myself a new project, Makach Walou 7c+. Great to start the season with some routes that kills you after a few metres… Before coming down to France I had a little vacaciones with my wife Petra. We went to Stockholm and bought a car, met some friends and relatives before heading to Bohuslän and the great crack climbing mecca of scandinavia. Tomorrow I will start my first Mont Blanc week of this summer and it’s gonna be nice to “do some good” again..
