October mountaineering is as good as any time to be here

Reuben Berg and his son carved out time from thier busy schedules to meet up in Chamonix, chill out and do a couple of days climbing together.
Later in the week Gareth and Caroline made the leap from hill walkers to mountaineers. We climbed the Aiguille du Toule high up in the valley blanche. The next day we took the Aigulle du Midi lift and climbed Pt Lachanael.
On Saturday Agust Gudmundsson and his brother Lydur and their children did thier first rock climbs at Les Gaillands in warm sunny weather.
