I've posted a few shots here of some of the classic routes I saw today, which obviously are a long way off being formed!
From no snow to loads of snow! - Kandersteg today
Great conditions on Tutto Relativo yesterday in Cogne - Steve leading the first pitch
Graham with a team in front leading the second steeper pitch
We opted not to wait and climbed the left side of the lower section of the pillar and belayed behind it! The second pitch was an exciting step around back onto the pillar and up!
Steve pulling over onto easier ground at the top of the steep pillar - on Tutto Relativo, Valeille, Cogne.
Steve leading the last pitch on Tutto Relativo, Valeille, Cogne
Cogne is obviously the place to be at the moment!
