Arête du Petit Belvédère


The cabin shakes in the storm.
No cry of suprise when passing a mast.
In the passengers’ faces you see worry, maybe even fear.

Are we going to climb?

We lay in waiting as the weather conditions did not allow playing at the big mountains.
Now we’re keen to get out, touch the granite, hit the ice and feel the elements.
Just a day ago we practiced rope maneuvers and dry-tooled rock pitches.
Now we are right in the fleeting foehn winds up on Grands Montets.

Feeling in shape on our crampons.
Somewhat crusing the pitches along the ridge.
Almost enjoying the forces of nature are at work.
