La Grave Ice Climbing Conditions – 14/01/08

Just a quick report and a few pics from Rich on the latest climbing conditions down in La Grave, where Rich is running the 2nd of our La Grave Ice Climbing Courses this season:

“Hi Al – done a few rts since new yr for myself, including grand clot – the classic 5+ of the valley with benson to the emparis plateau (500m climbing). Also did supreme dimension with benson.

Last week did following with matt and nik: formes du chaos at ceilac (mega conds, best for yrs), adrenalin rush, martinez couloir, autism in vallon diable, croup de la poufiasse, lead coaching on the moulin and some dry tooling routes. good week.” – yeah – I’d agree with that!
