Ailefroide - Summer 2010

Jeanie on 2nd pitch of Chaud Biz - the traverse was the easy part!

On a very scenic walk up to the Pre de Madame Carle from the campsite.

We continued the walk up Glacier Noir. Some fantastic scenery with the mountains of Pelvoux, Pic Sans Nom, Coup de Sabre and L'Ailefroide behind Jeanie.

Jeanie on the 3rd pitch of Remonte-Pente Directe. Lovely granite climbing.

Stuart on the final pitch of Remonte-Pente Directe. The view is looking down onto the village of Ailefroide with the campsite at the back.

Sport climbing on limestone at Les Collets just outside L'Argentiere La-Bessee. Stuart is belaying Jeanie who has taken this picture. On the left looking down is Lucy & Nigel who were on holiday with us.

We had a lovely walk up to the Col des Grangettes via Lac de L'Eychauda. Superb views all around.

Jeanie relaxing by Lac de L'Eychauda.

A day of mixed weather at Les Collets.

Cooking an evening meal at the campsite. We collected firewood from the woods around the campsite and used the fire to cook some of our meals. The temperature dropped rapidly once the sun disappeared.

In contrast our brunches were enjoyed in glorious sunshine, almost too hot!
