Roi de Siam (3,693m) is a relatively small peak surrounded by famous ones like Grand Capucin, Mont Blanc du Tacul… Nevertheless, it offers great routes on a perfect granit such as Petit Capoussin (ED-, 300m, 6b+) that we climbed yesterday with Pascal, Marie No and Matthias. Great conditions, dry route and sunny day.
Contamine, Labrunie and Vaucher opened their route on Aiguille du Peigne almost 60 years ago. It is a classic, nice, logical route and despite the reasonable grades (TD, 6a 400m), we ended up with pumped arms.
We finished the green trail of the Via Alpina in Lenk as planned. Then we had several options to reach Chamonix… and since the weather was really bad we chose to cross Rawilpass to quickly join Sion, then Martigny, Vallorcine and Col des Montets to Chamonix.
