The weather has since taken a turn for the worse, but last week was stellar. My friend Kevin Landolt, a former CMC student of mine turned super motivated and fast partner had some excellent days out climbing beautiful Chamonix granite.

The video below features some super fantastic moderate classics including the Midi-Plan traverse, the Pilier Rouge on the Aiguille de Blaitière and the Voie Contamine on Pointe Lachenal.

Pointe Lachenal, Midi Plan traverse, Aiguille de Blaitière under bright blue sky! Excellent rock and a fast partner.

Anyhow, I am headed out for another Mont Blanc climb and will report back later next week!
