A 31 year old Swiss climber who called the French rescue services claiming to have frostbite has been fined 3000 euros, 1500 of which are suspended for “giving false information leading to a rescue”. The verdict was handed down today in the first instance court in Bonneville, Haute-Savoie.
We set off to tour around and enjoy the beautiful mountains but finally we just did a return to the Belle Etoile and it was not bad at all.
We started at 7am. David put skis on a few minutes from the car park at 1500 meters with a few cm of hard snow.
