/ Chamonix guide - next week
Haven't got a huge amount to spend but flights booked and would rather climb than ski - my climbing buddy has flown to Croatia last minute!
Failing that, if any experienced climbers out there feel like earning a bit I can pay for cable car + a bit more.
Calling all cats in Chamonix
I think you blew it when you said:
Oh, I don't know - for a free ride up a lift?
That's the Blaitiere, doen't look like much is in condition.... that's the Peigne.... likewise....
Let me get the binocs out..... The Aiguille Rouge all look a bit wet.......
Where's that beer?
Or am I being a bit negative?
Yeah I know... it's definitely not how I imagined it would pan out but I have to salvage something from a misfortunate series of weather-related events
Even walking around above the valley floor I would imagine is a bit iffy - bottomless slush. Head for lower stuff S of Geneva?
There's still some skiing, as you point out.
