Chamonix Rock and Alpine Climbing, 28 June-2 July 2005

Peter, Linda and Ben Alexander

Photo #1: Ben practicing ice climbing on the Mer de Glace Glacier. This is a great place to go for foundational skills with crampons and ice axes that will be important higher in the mountains.

Photo #2: Linda plying her trade with a trustworthy belayer, her husband Peter. She did really well on the ice and later rock climbing.

Photo #3: Up high, The Aiguille de Toule was our first alpine objective. We had great weather and views of Mt. Blanc , behind us.

Photo #4: The Boys high on the glacier somewhere between Italy and France .

Photo #5: On our final day we climbed a more technical peak, one of the most aesthetic climbs in the Mont Blanc Range , the Arete des Cosmiques. Normally done with 2 clients and on guide, it proved challenging and rewarding as we did it “en famille”. The photos were all from the family. Thanks.
