Mt Mort

Peter Little and I started the week with the most awful weather forecast imaginable. Nevertheless We did manage to slalom around the worst of the weather and got a peak in on our first day Mt Mort. Or Mount Death! This is mountain above the Grand St Bernard Monastery. So named because it was [and is] the starting point for many avalanches that take out pilgrims on thier way over the pass in winter.
