Bec Charvet West Bowl
Weather cleared around 5pm and as it had stayed cool it seemed like a good chance to check out the fresh snow and revisit the west face and bowl of the Bec Charvet.
Tete de Bostan, normal route
Park at L'Erigné as close to the end of the road as you can, then follow the summer road upwards towards the Lac des Mines d'Or (signposted), this road is pisted into a walking track regularly i
Barres de Tencovaz
I'd been away for a few days, bad weather so no skiing lost. I got back around noon on Wednesday. A glorius day of sun and blue skied. Not too warm. Maybe a chance to get in a quick west face.
Mont Granier from Tencovaz
ClimbFrom the Station du Granier, when the resort is open you are not allowed to climb on the ski runs. This is pretty strictly controlled by the pisteurs.
Return of the Lucio
The big return of Luc from bivouak.net after his second paragliding accident. He seemed to climb pretty well given the pins in his ankle and his elderly Scarpa boots.
Chamechaude, West Face
ClimbFrom the Teleski du Chamchaude parking at 1250 meters about 1km before the col de Porte follow the ski run. After about 1km you join the main run from the Col de Porte on your left.
Le Venon Climb
Relatively steep climb on the south-east side of Grenoble up through the village of le Venon (bar opposite the church).
Superga via dei Colli, Turin, Italy
Classic Turin Loop. I did it on a hybrid bike hired from Touringbike which was in good condition but heavier than I'm used to. The climb to the Superga is spectacular with views over Turin.
Gerbier, West Face, West Couloir
RouteFrom the Clots car park head south into the Fauge valley in the direction of the Combe Charbonnière (signpost) to the west slopes of the Gerbier.
