22nd June 2011 Les Aravis

Storm clouds with Les Aravis behind.

The photo above shows the storm brewing last night (tuesday 21st June). The weather was poor overnight but a break in the weather this morning allowed us to climb Pic De Jallouvre (2408m) above the Col De La Colombiere in Les Aravis via its south east ridge. This gave a nice scramble. Details of routes in this area can be found in the Chaine Des Aravis and Plaisir guidebooks. The Mont Blanc Massif looked stormbound.

After this the weather remained fine for the next few hours so Rosie and I managed a couple of routes at La Duchere
