Hi, I am an Australian planning to spend the next 5 months climbing in Europe. I will probably spend most of my time in the alps. My plans are very flexible at this stage. I trad lead onsight around 18-19 aus grade (I think thats about 6a+- 6b french) and a little harder on sport. I have done a snow and icecraft course and have had a little experience on easy peaks in India. I am extremely keen for large alpine rock routes and to develop my mountaineering skills.

I will be travelling with plenty of climbing equipment and will probably have a vehicle.

I am arriving end of May and leave end of October. I have a few friends in Europe to climb with some of the time but alot of the time I will be on my own so I really want to meet some people to head out with.

PAROFESHey there!


Hello Kim,

I'll be in Chamonix at jun 28 or 29.
My time is really short, just 7 days to climb Mont Blanc and Mont Blanc de Couimayeur. If the time is enough i'll probably try Maudit too, or maybe Cervino.

If you want to, we can meet in Chamonix.

SA1380First two weeks of aug?


I'm looking for climbing partners on the first two weeks of august. I'll be completely free. I mostly want to do peaks around the Swiss Alps during those two weeks.
I'm also in Chamonix during the weekends (Fri-Sun, can ask for a day off for something major) until august.
feel free to email anytime.

kladigesRe: First two weeks of aug?


well at this stage I have no major plans. I was thinking of climbing out of chamonix in august but pretty flexible. I have a car so pretty mobile. super keen to do more mountaineering so sounds good. Im in Corsica at the moment but will be back in the swiss-french alps toward the end of july.

kheegsterFirst 2 weeks of Sept?


Hi, I am looking to do some long moderate alpine routes near Chamonix around the first 2 weeks of September. Do you have any interest in alpine ice at all? Many of the routes I'm looking at (Brenva Spur on Mt Blanc, the north faces of Mt Blanc du Tacul and Tour Ronde etc) have significant chunks of 50-60 degree ice. I'm happy to lead the ice portions and maybe in return you can lead some routes beyond my leading ability (around 5.7 or 5a). Send me a PM if that sounds interesting.
