Always Amazed that virtually no one seems to want to make the most of the Autumn.

Aiguille Verte in all its autumnal splendour.

 If you hit a good weather window, then  climbing in the Autumn in the alps is wonderful.  Certainly Reuben thinks so, as he has been climbing with me at this time of the year  for well over 20 years.  We seem to always have a good time together climbing lots of interesting and different climbs.  We also always seem to have the added bonus of solitude - something we both rate very highly.

Last week we had yet another good couple of days together. The first climbing at Vallorcine and the second with his  daughter Emma on the demanding via ferratta at the thermal park in Le Fayet.

Spectacular situations.
