made such a mess of the ropes?!?!
I think it was the horrible mountain monkey ;-)
Damn.... you're probably right.
Misschien moet je deze foto gewoon even overdragen naar de wettelijke eigenaar? :p
You're right. I've changed the name. The text is about the next pitch we were going to climb, so it doesn't fit to the picture.
Can you give me details about this route? That is exactly the kind of climb I want to do: alpine ice in narrow granitic gullies!
The Migotspur is not a typical gully. It is more a ridge/face route. This picture is the only exception on the route. Although I can highly recommend the route! The picture was made at the end of august 2007.
The Mont Blanc area is the perfect place to find alpine ice in narrow granite. Ther're several routes on the MB du Tacul, Argentière bassin and many more places. Numerous route are collected in this perfect guidebook: "Snow, ice and mixed. The guide to the Mont-Blanc Range.", Volume 1&2, François Damilano.
I hope I've answered your questions. Don't hesitate to contact again.
Thanks Juergen, that's very informative. I've already ordered those books and eagerly await them!
