Here’s a photo of two of the Winter Alpine Intro course making the last steps towards the summit of the Tête Entre Deux Sauts above the Val Ferret in Italy, after an Alpine start from the Bonatti Hut today. The conditions were reported to be perfect. Tomorrow the plan is for the course to head onto the Mer de Glace for glacier travel training, ice climbing and crevasse rescue practice. Then it’s off into the high mountains again for some classic Alpine routes such as the Cosmique Arête or the Petite Aiguille Verte.
