Our Alpine Summer season has started, and the more settled weather could not have come at a better time! In this photo you can see some guests on the Acclimatisation Weekend, in preparation for Mont Blanc, as they descend the ladders at the Aiguilette d’Argentiere. On the same day two other of our groups ascended the normal route on Index, which was fortunately clear of snow. On the couloir on the descent route, there was a lot of snow, so they made 4 abseils to reach the base. You can see all the photos at; http://picasaweb.google.com/IcicleUK/AcclimatisationTreks.
