/ Any point taking waterproofs to Cogne?
bump I'm packing now and a bit low on space / weight!
Do you have an ascent soft shell?
Cool I did wonder, my soft shells are the simmond trousers, rab exodus jacket (both thick stretch material but shed water pretty well) and a lowe alpine belay jackt (pertex style outer)
For future reference I didn't use the waterproofs, yes there was dripping water on some routes, but the amount I got wet compared with the amount of sweat retention in waterproofs made it no contest.
