Mike and Mark, a day off on the Aiguille du Peigne • 23, 2012

"Guide of Mystery", colleague, friend, and all-around great guy, Mike Powers spent a pleasant day on the Aiguille du Peigne with Mark, a busman's holiday. We climbed the Eperon Minette and continued up to the summit of the Peigne.

This must be the summit.


Heading down, off what we thought was the summit.
