Here is Stefano guiding on Mini Couloir on the Col des Montets. As the name suggests, he is an Italian guide, and one of the guests, Mano, is Italian too. Obviously they focused on ice climbing over the weekend rather than watching the 6 Nations rugby! Anyway, here they are on the first steep pitch, and they reported good ice conditions. On the first day they had climbed at the Cremerie icefalls above Argentiere.
