looking for a rope to join for the glacial a top the gouter. I'm booked in for the 18th sept at gouter and tete rousse the night before..?

can do kiwi coils and 6:1 pulley for crevasse rescue. I'm going alone on the off chance there's a weather window and I can join a rope to summit.??

I'm there from the 8th on a 5 day improver course also free from the 13th in chamonix for another week to do some alpining if anyone's keen

I'm not sure how much Alpinism will still be possible around Chamonix by then.  That's late season in what has been a hot, relatively dry summer.  Check out:

Mont Blanc, I imagine, should still be fine.

thanks for that information pero!! maybe i could just do some sport climbing there then after my course or hike up to tete rousse and the gouter and see if I can join a rope if weather still stable. I'l check in maison de la montagne a couple of days before.

can always retreat :p
