First part of trip :D

Tuesday morning and the weather was not to good... We arrived at the Torino hut with the first ride going up. Well is was quite foggy, maybe we could see 20-30 meters. Thus no climbing for us so we decided to take a trip on the glacier instead. Thus our goal was to navigate to Aguille du Midi :D Well we navigated wrong and at some stage we meet a guide with his clients asking us about the correct way :wink: We discussed a little and then we had gone to high so we headed back and then found the way to go. When we arrived at the Tacul plateau we could see nothing more then 10 meters but managed to find the way to the station. However since the cabelcar was closed back to Torino hut we had to go back :oops: But a nice day anyway improving the navigation skills.

Wednesday, perfect weather for us and see the pictures below, we did a route on Pyramid du Tacul as planned.

Today we woke up at 05.00 am with snow coming down :D Thus we went back to bed and took the ride down to Courmayer this morning. Still it was nice with the huge German group stranded at the hut.

Now two days rest and then off on saturday to Dalmazzi hut and do a route there.

chtur, nice!!! you see, i'm not the only one having mini-epics all the time :lol:, you learn quickly! btw what route did you do on Pyramide de Tacul? the 4 that goes on the left? The middle slabs look very good on that thing too...

btw, i'm debating to weather go to les Ecrins or the Dalmazzi hut this w-end...do you think all the snow coming won't keep the routes wet near Dalmazzi? Oisans looks more certain, we were thinking about Olan with my partner (refuge d'Olan etc.), wanna come along? Check out this and this, i like names the most!

UA: Yes, but with the direct start on the right, just going straight up all the way. Then you climb at least four all the time with the first five meters with crampons to find some ledge to swith the stuff.

Regarding Dalmazzi I will go with an other partner and he is only free probaly from middle of saturday. Our plan was to go up on saturday afternoon and then do a route on sunday and go down. However the weather was told to get better from tomorrow again and I do not know more than that. Of course with the 10 cm of fresh snow outside the hut this morning.... If it gets sunny it goes quick since it is still quite hot.

Olan I know by name and the routes looks nice, I have a guidebook at home from this area and it is not in french :D But going there is not possible for me this weekend. However I know a route I would like to do on a pillar on Barre des Écrins, 800 m of rockclimbing :D, maybe you are going to do this now?

Seriously, I think this is a strategy of yours. Invite people to climb, fill them up, and then excel next day b/c you're the only one without a hangover.

Hehe, but it didn't really work out THAT day, right?

Hard to get something written if the whole site is on strike... It was scary to see how freaking productive I can get if the options for procrastinating are limited like that :shock: :lol:

Yeah, what was up with that!? I had to actually work all day! :evil:

Well, it was a fun weekend with most of the gang in Fonti (9 of us), weather was amaaaaazing, rock was wonderful, and good times with pizza and beer after! :D Unfortunately, we were having so much fun that none of us took any pictures!!

Steve-o did rig up his slackline on Sunday and now Sarah and I are totally addicted! Holy cow is it fun!! Even when you fall off every two seconds... you just KNOW you'll get it next time. Needless to say, we had Steve online yesterday evening ordering our slacklines from America! :D

sounds nice, are you bringing the slackline to ettringen?

i went to les ecrins, to a summit called Olan - rather long approach with 3hr to the hut, another 1-2 to the climbs. It was wet on saturday, so the climbing looked like this

but the cirque itself was very beautiful - here are a couple of panorama shots taken by my partner -

I like this one too, it's a bit surreal and looks like it's coming from a kingdom of ants, from sunday that gave us better weather and another climb -

Hi EuroFreaks !

I like this forum ! A certain Mr. Taz (booger) gave me that hint.

I wonder if anyone can help me:

I'll be off for two weeks (Aug 24 - Sep 6) and I feel desperate desire to climb (Level 6a/6a+).

Southern France, would be nice to go, I thought. Or, as I opened my mind recently: Italy, Greece ?

I'm looking for partners whom I could join / would like to join me / anyhow: Can anyone of you help me further ?

who should show you around anyway?!

ok, vegetarians make a stand! otherwise I'll order steaks (pigs) for everyone...
