Meanwhile over on the sunny side, Davide Capozzi and Stefano Bigio stuck a first descent down the SW face of Mont Rochefort – a route they’ve been eyeing for years.
In a post on PlanetMountain.com, Capozzi reports, “The descent is continuously exposed, down 45° – 50° slopes. The snow varied considerably since it hadn’t settled completely. We made [two] abseils [down] the final section, one 50m abseil followed by a second, shorter one.”
Capozzi and Bigio rate the route 5.2 E3 and called it Pente a Rémy in honor of Rémy Lecluse who originally suggested skiing the line together.
Check out the full story on PlanetMountain.com.
It may be getting harder to find freshies but the first warm, sunny days in weeks means only the most hardcore whingers are complaining.
Chamonix-meteo calling 5-20cm at 1000m with the disclaimer, “Snow amount depending partly on the barrier effect against the northern slopes of the massifs is difficult to evaluate.” Everyone else guessing between 3-7cm at 2000m with nothing else forecast for the next few days.
Did I mention the sun’s out?
Just another day out with Nate, Yo, Bullitt, Thor, Seth, Maria, Oli, Plake and American Dave.
Shout out to Nate for the footy. Keep your eyes on the fall line, amigo.
“In life, it’s our choice whether we laugh or cry.”
If there’s anyone who’s had reason to cry it’s snowboarder, BASE jumper and wingsuit flyer Géraldine Fasnacht. To understand what this young woman has been through and how she’s found the inner strength to bounce back is a testament to her extraordinary character.
