What a great trip, didn't break my leg this year, did lots of great climbing with great friends and managed to do Les Formes Du Chaos in perfect conditions. Probably the best 300m of the most interesting ice I've climbed. Wish I could have stayed on the extra day or so and done Sombre Heros with Dean and Anders. Ah well next year.
Huge respect to the other brits (students?) we met in the bar in Ceillac who were:
a) Camping (-15C)
b) Struggling and terrifying themselves on their first steep ice. I hope you had a great week!
