Just in case you were wondering I thought I’d just reassure you that I am still very much alive and well. Sh*t me though it’s been cold the last few weeks! And it still is. It was all a bit too much for the van unfortunately which gave up soon after the mercury dived. Luckily I have some very understanding friends who have looked after me and I also bit the bullet and checked into the Hotel Castillan in La Grave.
So what have I been up to? I’m trying to remember but the highlights have definitely been visiting friends, firstly Jarv and then the gang. I always managed a rather good fun ascent of the Promenade du Matheysin, one of La Grave’s classic ice routes (excuse the handlebar moustache in the pictures).
Here is a picture summary.
