The last 3 months have been awesome, I have been questing around all over the place having loads of fun. First up way a winter sports trip to Saint Gervais ne Chamonix, some friends of mine had a friend who owned a suarve chalet and invited us along for a week. The chalet was great with loads of room for 8 people and a sauna down stairs. It had amazing views of mont blonc and it was walking distance to a small chair lift that accessed the St Gervais resort.
The weather was perfect for the whole week, in terms of blue skies and no cloud but this also meant there was no fresh snow, oh well you carnt have it all!
We had 3 days snowboarding, 2 days skiing and 1 day ski touring, check out some photo's below.
We stayed in a small but very nice apartment owned by the mountaineering legend Silvo Caro, we were the first to stay here and I would fully recomed it if anyone is keen to go out.
I climbed loads of 7b+'s a 7c, 7c+ and 2 8a's, this was pretty much the first time on rock since Hueco and it felt like a great start to the season.
I have listed below some of the best problems i did.
L'angle parfait 7b
Contol A 7c
Master edge 7c
mur de lementations 7b+
Supplement de armes 7c+
La balaine 7a
L' Oef 7b
Metromotrice ( the best 7b+ in the forest!?)
I will try and get some photos up asap.. cheers S
This years CWIF was also a massive success with over 300 competitors and a full capacity crowd. I had been busy organising other areas of the comp and thus had nothing to do with the route setting and after a Dutch team member pulled out due to injury I was drafted in to the dutch team. I really enjoyed myself and ended up finishing in 11th place. check out the following high light film of CWIF 2011
