Great stuff, Marlow! I was surprised how quickly my French is returning.

I wonder if the incidence of rockfall in Yosemite Valley, which doesn't have the same permafrost issues as Mt. Blanc, has also accelerated. Perhaps Greg Stock has statistics on that.

In any case, no matter how little ice is there, enchaining Les Courtes and Les Droites dazzles me.

This is all the kinda stuff coming from a background as a endurance athlete that made climbing so appealing to me. I am a long way from any of these guys and many of those dreams may now never come to fruition due to overuse type injury. It wont stop a guy from trying dreaming though and trying his darndist.

Threads like these are what give me butterflies inside and awaken my soul. Something about the alpine that just pure rock does not do for me.

Now if i could just do something about these two dam mutching dogs I love so much I could make my way to France and get on with things. They wont live forever i suppose and maybe my feet will get batter? ekk did i think that!!!!

Marlow,

Get thine ass off of the pretty rock climbs. You don't go all the way to Chamonix to go cragging!!!

I will send you a list of classics. Don't die.
