The Alps is a playground for adventurers of all kinds but in Feb we were hunting Ice . You can ice climb in Scotland of course but be prepared for long highland walk ins with a heavy pack. My wife – she doesn’t love it ! So off to the Alps for some fun based in Chamonix.
Cogne was our target and we got some cracking climbing done but sadly conditions meant the mythical roadside routes were gone so.. yep.. walk ins. worth it ? Oh yes ! This pic is of James Thacker , leading off on the Lilaz Gully
