Gran Paradiso 4061m

This is a colour photo, believe it or not, on the summit of Gran Paradiso yesterday. This 4061m peak is the final objective of the Alpine Intro course, and as you can see, the weather was decidedly cold! The poor old summit madonna is encrusted in rime frost. This group was guided by Stephane, and they had to move fairly quickly to keep warm. Obviously there weren’t great summit views, but well done all for your efforts. At the end of this weekend, the Victor Emmanuel refuge closes for a few weeks. You can see the photos at; http://picasaweb.google.fr/IcicleUK/GranParadisoTheIcicleAlpineIntroCourse
