Back in Chamonix again, this time for our guides course starting on Thursday. To try to get back some acclimatization me and Sami Modenius went up Aiguille du Midi with the first bin this morning. Our main goal was to breath some thinner air, practice some crevasse rescue and do some short roping and as the forecast wasn’t too good we wanted to stay close to the lift. We got everything we asked for; and lapped the Cosmiques arête two times, got to fall down some crevasses in between, had a long coffee break at the station and where back in time around three o’clock. What a good day!
Sami - Finish sisu!
