Barberine Slab Climbing

Amazing “summer” weather in Chamonix today – a bit unexpected really, the forecast had suggested a chance of a shower and a föhn wind. But we quickly, that is quickly after waking up at 10am, made best of it with some slabby rock climbing at Barberine…



Hopefully there’s a sense of the thinness of the slab in the next picture – it was pure faith in friction most of the way. I guess it was a bit tricky for our first “alpine” route of the year and being so early in the season we weren’t exactly match fit – neither of us found it as easy as it should have been!


Of course one beautiful aspect of spring time alpine climbing are all the lovely flowers…
