Cold Couloir here looked in great shape today with a number of teams climbing it

Stella Artice here was getting climbed & looked in great condition

Candelabro del Coyotte here was also climbed today & looked in good condition

Tuborg here was also climbed today & looked in great shape

Loads of wildlife around the valley today & enjoying the sun & lack of snow here at the moment.

Just fantastic ice conditions here in Cogne at the moment & all the routes in Valeille in amazing condition as our route was today.

Me top right on Chandelle Levure & Cold Couloir on the left on the other side of the valley - awesome.

Enjoy & stay safe
