Le Grand Bornand - Camping Les Clos du Pins
Monday, 3 August 2015
Pointe Percee - Monday 20th July
From Col des Annes up to the refuge and on to Pointe Percee's classic climb up the arete to the summit then a long scramble back down. The route was perfect for a hot day as it is mostly north facing and with a bit of cloud around to add atmosphere, conditions were quite pleasant.
The climbing is straightforward mostly then steeper for the last section up the summit. The exposure is immense especially on Le Rasoir, a knife-edge arete!

Sunday 5th July
A climb on the shadier side of Ailefroide! The second pitch was tricky for 5c and the Finnish girl climbing behind us thought it the hardest 5c pitch she had climbed! The pitches above were more realistically graded with a lovely slab and a steep finish on good holds. Then a walk down through the trees and back for ice cream.
