SWM living in Chamonix ISO fun people to do fun climbing-type things with.
Are you or is someone you know...
* Living the Alpine dream?
* 'Doing a season'?
* Just passing through, with a harness?
Perhaps we can link up. I'm living in Chamonix since 2004 and unless work is driving me too nuts am usually up for doing something. Rock, ice, alpine, or ski - if it involves pain, freezing cold, fear, and general unpleasantness brought on by being high up on a hill somewhere, I'm usually game as long as I can snap a couple pretty pictures and we don't have to call a helicopter.
Some route ideas, although I'm open to really anything:
* Jager Couloir
* Rochefort - Grands Jorasses Traverse
* Cordier Piller
* Frendo Spur
* Dom-Taschhorn Traverse
* Couturier Couloir
* Cogne in January
* Indiana Jaune (Maladiere)
* Col de la Columbiere

PLEASE CONTACT ME BY EMAIL --- click here and you'll find my address (in a format spam readers have a bit of trouble digesting). I only check PM messages on summitpost about once every six months or so. I check the messages you see below on this page even less.
