Some shameless reblogging here! From all that we have heard about Kyrgyzstan, the snow can be erm interesting and very varied. So I’ve been on a little bit of a mission to climb run out, slightly suspect snow routes. At least here in Chamonix I can call a helicopter if it all goes wrong! My head is definitely a lot calmer now that I’m better at controlling snow slope fear. Snow traverses are still quite horrible though….
