/ Ice falls surrounding Chamonix
This is probably a silly question given the current temperatures but does anyone know the condition of ice falls near Chamonix (La Cremerie, Col de Montets or anywhere else which is fairly easy access from the Valley anyone could suggest).
The Argentiere glacier routes looked form a distance like they were just about holding together yesterday but I'd want the temps to drop before I headed for them. If I hear any more I'll let you know.
Good luck with whatever you get up to!
How long are you in Cham for?
Hey guys, any updates on the conditions in Cogne? Cheers!
Climbed E Tutto Relativo in Cogne on Weds, was still in good nick, and other routes on the same aspect also looked to be good. Argentiere icefalls looked like they were falling down today (from a distance). Ice/mixed routes like the Frendo Rav and Claire Chazzal are in good nick, but lots of snow making access difficult- put a pretty big trench in to the dificulties on the claire Chazzal today.
Anyone seen the Cosmiques icefall recently?
