Valsaverenche today

We headed over into Valsaverenche today - the 24hr temperature cycle we're seeing in Cogne at the moment (cold nights & warm daytime temps) is just perfect for creating & fattening up the existing ice, especially where there's good drainage............Patri yesterday & Rovenaud in Valsaverenche today - I've not seen Rovenaud, stacked so full of ice before!

Me leading the 1st main pitch on Rovenaud in Valsaverenche

Me enjoying the 3rd pitch on Rovenaud WI4, 140m - Valsaverenche

Darren pulling hard on the steep 4th pitch on Rovenaud today

The weather continues! - cold in the shade, warm in the sun, fantastic blue skies & great ice.

Heading back to Leysin tomorrow & then over to Kandersteg for the weekend - the quest for ice continues!

Stay safe
