Well, it does looks like the pic was done around 10am - it's 4 hours to the Boccalatte to ask Luciana for the first celebratory drink , then 2 hours to Planpincieux for the second one, then La Palud for the third, Entreves the fourh, Larzey the fifth... including the mandatory second round and the "great final" at the Bar Des Guides, I think yes, it will take some time before one gets home....
but when we arrived the sunday afternoon to the Boccalatte (in my opinion one of the best hut in the Alps!!!) and we were only with Luciana, we stay another relaxing night!!! For me (but I think for everyone!!!) mountain is also to taste the lack of city's stress!!!
