Aiguille du Midi: Rebuffat – Baquet

Many years ago, I climbed the Rébuffat – Baquet route in the South face of Aiguille du Midi in Mont Blanc Massif. Beautiful route but we « got lost » above the 6th pitch and finished by another route… Climbers on the Aiguille du Midi ridge (© P. Gatta)

Trail: Le Moulin – Les Gaillands

Yesterday, Anna, Ingela and I went for a nice trail running in the Mont Blanc Massif, my first 20+km run since I came back from the Makalu expedition. Great weather and very nice trail beside the snow in the Brévent. On the way to Flégère (© A. Gatta)
