Yes, great photos Carlos.

And thanks for the articles in French, Marlowe.
I always need more practice in that language and what better way than by reading about climbing?

Oh, a thread on the Grandes Jorasses, my all time favorite mountain. Here's few recent pictures of it

Hy there

I want to share a picture from last week, even it is not the Grand Jorasses. It shows the Glacier d'Envers de Blaitière - not showing the temperature: -20 grad celsius and 60 km/h wind..

Funny how I remember how much my feet hurt on the way down to Courmayeur,

after doing the Walker Spur, back in 1975. I had bought a pair of Super Guides, in Chamonix, and they weren't broken in.

Super Guides used to break your feet in, not the other way round, Steve! Amazingly you can still get them!

Luca and Berner... fantastic photos.
¡Ah!... Galibier boots... I used years ago the "Pro" model... with a plastic reinforcement in toes.

jaaan, I lost one of mine crossing a raging river in the N Cascades once and
hiked out with one boot and my bare foot taped up. The bare foot felt better
at the end. Actually, it felt better all over, not just the end. ;-)

@ Carlos Gallego.

Can you remember the date that you climbed the Walker in 1990?

Jaaan...mmm... maybe in august but do not remember date.
We were surprised by storm near the top... I remember that there were a couple of climbers behind us that made bivouac 150m. from top... and we did it near de summit but in the italian side.
The next day we met two japanese climbers sleeping in a crevasse (italian side)... and near the hut we met two more climbers (we were eating with them and remember that they made the Eiger north face a days before).

Ah, we had good clear weather all day. We were there on the 3rd August. I just wondered if you were the Spanish climbers who passed us near the top.
