Ed Lynch climbing for 5 days in the Chamonix area • June 26-30, 2013
Ed Lynch, recently from Switzerland, took a bit of time from work and joined Mark for 5 days of climbing in and around Mont Blanc. We enjoyed the typical mix of weather, with a healthy portion of sun, but also a taste of cloud, rain and snow. But we did manage to have a good time on the hill for all five of our days together.
We began with the classic combination of a Traverse of the Points Lachenal, finishing on the Arete des Cosmiques. The following day, much cloudier and cooler, we managed to squeeze in the Traverse of the Aiguille d'Entreves. Then came the Chapelle de la Gliere (finishing with in the falling snow) and the next day, rock climbing in the warmth of Italy on the Diretto al Banano in Machaby, while Chamonix and the north of the Alps were subject to day0-long rain and enough snow up high to be a bit of an avalanche concern. Our last day was on the Petite Aiguille Verte with new snow and all, but brilliant sunshine.
