Mountaineering in the Chamonix Area

Paul, Hector and I have been mountaineering in the Chamonix area the last three days. After completing an ecole de glace session on Sunday on the Mer de Glace and some rock climbing at Le Fayet yesterday morning, we walked to the Refuge Albert Premier.

Today we climbed the Petite Fourche (3520m) and the Tete Blanche (3421m). The mountains were in good condition. The glaciers were in excellent condition for this time of year.
