Alpine classics

The past three weeks have seen exceptional snow route conditions in the Alps, and we have had groups ascend the North Face of Gran Paradiso, Couloir Copt (pictured here), North Face of Tete Blanche, Couloir de Table, and the North Face and Gervasutti Couloir on the Tour Ronde. This period of summer is generally the best for these types of route, but is nearing an end for now due to the valley temperatures being over +30°C for at least the past ten days! You can see what our groups have been up to in their photo galleries at; http://picasaweb.google.com/IcicleUK/ChamonixAlpineClassicsCourse
