Trying to concoct a harebrained scheme for the summer of love 2009. I read somewhere that this summer is to be the modern equivalent of the 1967 summer of love, but anyway while the hippies are all dropping LSD and delving into other realms of consciousness I plan to be delving up classic north faces in Chamonix.
I plan to be out there from mid June until September so if anyone has similar plans please drop me an email and we can try scheme together.
My tick list is never ending when it comes to the alps so anything fly’s. What I don’t like is long snow hikes, its just not my thing. I love technical faces an long free climbs, ice and rock. Mixed climbing is my real cup of tea. I am pretty easygoing person, I have lots of experience in the mountains and I spent a few seasons in Chamonix before. IF the valley blues kick in (the weather in chamoinx suck) I am also down for hitting anywhere else in Europe. But as it stand I am on a serious budget so hitchhiking might be the only way…
At the moment I live in the bay area and plan to spend as much of my free time as I can in Yosemite or the high sierra.
