Went on a 4000 some feet training round from the Grepon parking lot up to the Plan de l’Aiguille as a reasonably fast paced non-stop-till-the-top kinda workout. I encountered a fair amount of snow with a cover of up to two feet in some spots. Once up there I just took the Aiguille du Midi tram down. Here are the pictures:
|View of the Aravis range from Chamonix. This is |
about halfway between Annecy and Chamonix.
|View of a windy Dome du Gouter from the Grepon trail. This is on the |
"normal" way up to the Mont Blanc when you're skinning up.
|...and getting closer.|
|And the inevitable picture of Skadi.|
