Fun weekend with Anna in Italy; we climbed Breithorn the fist day and ran around Valtournenche and Cervinia the second day. A good combo of 40km and +2200m in a very scenic place.

Nice climb of Aiguille de Bionnassay with Morgan yesterday. The ridge was a bit icy but overall the conditions were good for the season and it is really an excellent route.

The Mont Buet is one of the best viewpoint in the valley and for those looking for a scenic and challenging trail, the North South traverse is a good choice.

Lucky with the weather, I had a busy summer leading clients in the Massif. It is now time to sort out the photos, walk less and run more… ;-)

The Crochues Traverse is one of the most classic scrambling of the Aiguilles Rouges. After a quick climb, we switched to trail running to Col des Montets and Argenti√®re, enjoying a full day outdoor.

Last year Anna and I climbed Mariage de la terre et du vent at Aiguille du Belv√©d√®re and we enjoyed it. This year we are back there to try another Michel Piola‚Äôs route; Baisers Orageux.

The North-Northest spur of Aiguille de l’M is a classic route opened in 1945. It is a fun climb on a good granite and the Aiguille de l’M offers amazing views over Chamonix Aiguilles.

Pascal and I went back to the beautiful Southeast face of Minaret to climb another great route: Rasta Metal. The route is the last one on this wall, on the right of The Rebuffat – Mazars and offers sustained climb on a perfect granite. Thanks again to Fred and B√©a for their kindness at the Argentiere hut.
