Bob & Kim Prust, Alps Alpine Climbing • July 30 - August 2, 2004

In July, Bob and Kim Prust of Traverse City, MI, joined Kathy for a few days of climbing in the Chamonix area. We started with a traverse of the Crochues in the Aiguilles Rouges, followed by a scenic traverse of the Géant Glacier in the heart of the Mont Blanc massif, and ending up with a "fun-ride" climb of the Arête des Cosmiques.

As we were climbing, Mark and Chris Kulp appeared at the top of a nearby route, the "Eperon des Cosmiques". After a hoot and a wave, they were gone again.


Kim crankin' the crux! She likes it! Hey Mikey!


Kathy and Bob climbed the Index, in the Aiguilles Rouges, while Kim recovered from the previous day's overdose of sun!


We enjoyed T-shirt weather on the Index, and relatively light traffic.


The epic rappel off the Index is always entertaining.
