/ Alpine Climbing in Winter with Little Alpine Experience?
Since my mate and I have got plenty of time of this winter, the idea of an extended climbing trip somewhere seems quite appealing. I was thinking along the lines of bolts, nice limestone, pretty girls with a cheap cost of living, that sort of thing.
He's suggested going to the Alps instead. Personally I think to much bouldering and the Southern Sandstone has done something to his state of mind or I am being to quick to judge.
Can you both ski off-piste? And have avalanche gear and know how to use it? Otherwise ice-climbing might be the go.
