/ Alps in late Sept??
Best time of year for the Dolomites.
Did most of my "big" routes in Chamonix in September, although closed lifts can be a problem.
Might have been but for work overload this month (not much better in October, truth be said).
You could try the Powder Beast of Montebelluna, although he has been pretty active of late so might be laying low again. He might know somebody else to try ...
Thanks have inquired :)
i am currently living in Chamonix. I am looking for partners,too. Happy to do most things! So if interested just shoot me a message.
Well, judging by the current state of things and weather forecast, summer is fully over and the fall season has started. Lots of snow up high, and ice has been reported to be fairly fat in the tacul triangle (other than chere). Fil a plomb looked surprisingly fat as well, though of course not climbable yet.
This has the potential to be a very good fall.
In reply to joe.91:
I was aiming to head that way at the weekend but the hut guardian lady wouldn't take my booking till later in the week cause she reckons you won't get near it for the time being due to the amount of fresh stuff that's fallen/falling (on what looks like pretty strong winds according to the forecast)
Don't think anyone would be up there just now given the forecast but any first hand knowledge would be appreciated.
Also - are there any mixed routes closer/lower that are likely to have come in?
Well, I was up there on Monday, shooting on Arête à Laurence. Ridiculous amount of snow, most of it windblown, lots of slabs all around. We started a small slide just walking down from Aiguille du Midi. And more has fallen yesterday.
You will need a solid few days of good weather for stuff to stabilise, but after that should be good. I wouldn't get near anything up there before beginning of next week if the forecast is right.
