Emery Dameron in the Alps • September 8 -14, 2008
Once again Emery Dameron and his wife Martha traveled from their home in northern California for a week of climbing (at least on Emery's part) in the Alps. Unlike last year (see his week of climbing in 2007) the weather this time round was somewhat more problematic, and we had to "weave and duck" to find routes in good condition in tolerable weather. Starting in Zermatt we climbed a couple routes on the Riffelhorn, then continued on to do the Portjengrat above Saas Grund. Then finished with a rather wet climb of the Aiguille Crochues above Chamonix.
