Mike Starr climbing in Chamonix • August 29 - 30, 2011

Mike Starr Joined Mark for two quick days of climbing in late August.

With a good forecast, we headed straight up to the high country, climbing the East Arête of the Pyramid du Tacul on the first day, and the Traverse of the Aiguille d'Entrèves on the second.

A bit of low cloud on the hike to the Torino hut at the end of the day.


The following morning, as we walk over to the Aiguille d'Entrèves. The sun is fully on Mont Blanc behind, and just beginning to catch the summit of the Tour Ronde on the left.


Almost to the start of the rock climbing. Here, we are looking back towards the Aiguille du Midi.
