Les Aravis, Chamonix and the Mont Viso Massif
Tina, Scott, Steve, Paul and I had a great time last week in the Alps. The weather forecast was poor but by moving to find good weather we achieved some great routes. We completed the following;
- Arete du Doigt and the Cheminee Sallanches on Pointe Percee. This is the highest mountain in Les Aravis.
- The traverse of the Aiguille des Crochues above Chamonix.
- The Cresta Perotti on the Punta Venezia and La Cresta Est on the Punta Udine. These superb ridges are both located in the Mont Viso Massif.
- Some superb multi pitch rock climbing on the Costa Grande near the Refuge Sella in the Mont Viso Massif.
