Tour Germaine

Pete and Steve at the summit Madonna

Steve, Laetitia, Zac, and I set off for what looked like an easily accessible and long (10 pitches) relatively easy (max grade 5+) rock climb. The guidebook said it was a short easy approach. It turned out to be super sunny, hot, very uphill, and well over an hour long. It was tough work for the unacclimatised, but the aim was to get acclimatised ready for the Etape du Tour

Unfortunately Laetitia and Zac turned back and didn’t climb as it was clearly not a dog-friendly spot to leave Zac alone for several hours. He would have roasted to death in the direct sun and crippling heat. 🙁
