Snowy Chere Couloir

Last weeks Alpine Classics course had a great week of ascents including the Col de la Colombiere, Frison Roche on Brevent, and at the end of the week they wrapped things off with an ascent of the Chere Couloir on the North Face triangle of Mont Blanc du Tacul. Here you can see Christina abseiling down the last pitch. As you can see from the photos, there had been a fair amount of fresh snow in the Alps during the week, and you can see the verglas all over the rocks. Fortunately the fresh snow didn’t hinder any of the courses, but it did remind us that Autumn is fast approaching.
