chamonix : our small tent on Italian side...

For me, it's was one of the longest and the best trips in the Alps. The plan was to start from Italy, then go down and move to France (Chamonix) and climb near Envers des Aiguilles. Then if we would still have time, we wanted to go for the last few days to La Vallée Blanche and Aguille du Midi. 

So as we planned... straight from the car, we have packed gear in our backpacks, took some food to Ikea bag :-) and pay for the cable car which took us to Punta Helbronner where we set up our tent close to the Torino hut.

Our main goal was to climb Grand Capucin, but unfortunately due to a few storms and snowfalls, we had to adjust our plan. We had to take it really slow and smart because we had no acclimatisation and we were sleeping in my small tent on the glacier where it was really hard to rest.

After all, it wasn't that bad because we managed to climb some really cool routes.

- Petit Capucin (3693m n.p.m.) - Roi De Siam | 5c // 330m 
- Pointe Adolphe Rey (3535m n.p.m) - Salluard | 6a // 300m 
- Chandelle du Tacul (3561m n.p.m.) - Bonatti - Tabou | 6b // unfortunately due to snow we had to go down...
