Ice Ice (Not)
Well here i am in Chamonix wondering what to do tomorrow. Today i saw temperatures up to 19.5 degrees!!!!!! After the absolute pain in the arse that was the uk weather, our driver Audrey Seguy missing her flight and an unplanned night in the italian version of Faulty Towers, Il Sloe in Turin we finally made it to Cogne hoping to find some ice in. After a swift walk in we managed a pitch on rock to gain the gully of Patinaggio Artistico only for a large bloc of ice to fall off and narrowly miss myself and Audrey. Quick decission time............bugger this its melting we are going down. Oh well so much for the Ice........just about to tuck into a fantastic Moussaka cooked by our host Louise who runs the coaching and guiding company Mountain Girl here in Chamonix. As for tomorrow..................sun, sun and more sun. Anway check out the bloc with the unclimbed 8m high brick hard face.
