Training time! Remembering how to climb Alpine Snow routes

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….DSCN4044s
