I was just posting to also check the www.alpineexposures.com website for more of "the author's work" when I realized it's you who posted it :p Love your pictures. I was out for a full moon midnight hike with my cam in the Le Tour area last August, the same night you've been on the Dru taking those phantastic moonlight shots of the Mt Blanc massif over the Mer de Glace and the valley lights behind. Stunning shots!

Very nice work, but I'll just never really understand "speed" climbing...unless there are hot podium girls waiting at the top.

Great video.

As for speed climbing I guess when you're as good as these guys and gals that's where the challenge lies. Probably bored out of his mind climbing the North Face of the Eiger with a partner. It would take me 2 hrs and 47 minutes just to get my gear ready to attempt that route and 2 hrs and 47 minutes to get drunk enough to even think of doing it solo. Even then I wouldn't.
