A great way to finish a busy two weeks with Michael. We climbed the east ridge on the Weisshorn on Thursday. It was a great three day trip for us, which meant we could enjoy the cool of the morning and great views on the way down.

High winds in the high mountain. We climbed the Aig. Du Peigne via Les Lepidopteres and the SW ridge and the Lepiney crack. The beer tasted good when we got back to Chamonix. International School of Mountaineering - ISM British Mountain Guides #MEclimbing.

We went over to the Italian side today. We had a bit of a team split due to foot issues. We walked over to the start of the Marbree and then back for coffee and cake. James Thacker IFMGA Mountain Guide #MEclimbing British Mountain Guides
