Climbing the Chere Couloir

Great to get out with Tom the other day – he’s a fit young climber, keen to try a bit of alpine ice climbing, so we headed up to the Midi and climbed the Chere Couloir (a typical climb on our Alpine North Faces weeks).  Along the way I did a bit of filming and knocked up a short video of the climb – it gives a good idea of what the climbing is like and how we teach in an alpine environment – ie  mixing coaching, advice and skills into a real day out on the hill, so it all makes sense!
