chamonix : envers des aiguilles

After we came down from Torino, we have decided to take a short rest, eat pizza and head to Envers des Aiguilles. The weather forecast was still quite good so there was no time to waste.

Refuge de l'Envers des Aiguilles it's a very special place. I do not know why, but despite hard climbing, this place feels almost like home to me. 

This time together with Paweł we managed to climb two classics and due to the rainy weather also a few shorter routes located just below the hut.
 
- Tour Rouge (2899m n.p.m.) - Le Marchand de Sable 6c (end with Dracula route) 
- Pointe des Nantillons (2921m n.p.m.) - Amazonia 6b 
- Envers Hut (2532m n.p.m.) 
    - Dinosaurus 6b / 6b+ 
    - Elephant Man 5c / 6a+ 
    - La Boite de Pandore 6a
