M6 Solar and Cogne

On January 16, 2013 by Tim Neill

Had a brilliant couple of days climbing with James Thacker. Day 1 was a trip on skis to Pointe Lachenal and a climb up the classic M6 Solar followed by a rapid ski back down to Chamonix. A great day out on some well protected ice and mixed, with a bit of Scottish powder to make us feel at home ( on the route, not the descent ).

Next day we drove through to Cogne and a couple of classic icefalls. Coyote and Tuborg. Great conditions, and consequently quite busy but fantastic climbing!

Other than this, ice climbing on the Rive Gauche sector above Argentiere, plenty of skiing in and around Chamonix……mostly with Dave H, Mark and old pal, Owain.
