Mountaineering in Les Aravis

Martin and I have had a great couple of days out in Les Aravis. This limestone mountain range overlooks Mont Blanc and provides a good number of technical mountains with many routes on excellent rock.

On Tuesday, we traversed La Mamule (2404m) and La Petite Miaz (2359m) before bivouacking for the night.

Today we traversed Mont Charvet (2538m) via the Pilier sud-ouest.

The trip gave us 3 mountain summits, 22 pitches of technical rock climbing, lots of scrambling and 1 bivouac. All in all an excellent couple of days out.

Lots more photos on the facebook page.
