/ cham conditions
The Rouge is plastered with fresh snow, its like November both in temperature & outlook at the moment.
Sure this will soon disapeer once the sun returns, but think that is not due until Tues!
Weather will be settled and reasonably warm from today to next Wednesday. Recent snowfall has mended the worst of the damage done by the heatwave on thw French side, but on our side conditionsnare dry again from 3500m
From next Wednesday there's a fair chance of serious rain falling for the rest of the week, but it's still something of a guess given the time distance
Excellent Photo of the North Face of the Jorasses in the link above taken 2 days ago.
Since there's a thread...
Are the tops of the Aigs Rouges / Mont Buet type things likely to be covered in snow at the moment as well, then?
Not right now, to much snow. Maybe later next week.
Not covered but there is a dusting up there right now.
I'm currently trying to get as excited as possible about the valley cragging / bouldering on the grounds that that'll influence the weather and conditions to be good higher up... but I'm superstitious like that.
