A false good idea going to the Arselle after a super-hot February (one of the hottest since 1900). I actually had to skate all the way down the descent of the normally superfast Astragal. The climb wasn't so bad and conditions were better up on the plateau. The upper Astragal remains as steep and hard as ever, unable to climb without stopping in these conditions. I did another loop of the plateau then called it a day.


Warm, sticky and very slow.

Time: 1pm to 2.30pm
