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

Jeroen VelsHi Birtle,

Jeroen Vels

I'll arrive in Cham on the 18th of August. Be happy to meet you and see if we can climb anythiing together. Sorrie to mention that I allready climbed the Aiguille du Midi - Rebuffat and Tacul - Gervesutti, but there's plenty of other stuff to attack.

I'm also living in Chamonix for the year (2007/8) and looking for climbing partners.
I'm not working so I'm available to climb anytime.
If you'd like to meet up, drop me an email and we can meet in Chamonix.
