When in Rome

Having skied ever day and not having had room in my overstuffed bags for a spare pair of legs i took the day off and went with Neil and Ben to sample the delights of the Chamonix training crags for dry tooling. Several local activists have developed wee little steep crags in the valley specifically for training with tools. The one we went to was down the valley near Salanches behind the health spar in the gully by the side of the river. Neil led up all the routes and Ben and i tried our best to second him on them. Ben did far better than me as i got pumped and couldn't finish any of the routes without falling off several times.

It's currently mincing it down with snow in the valley so it's back to the planks tomorrow for some steep and deep.
