Petit Clocher Du Portalet and La Duchere

On thursday the 10th September Greg and i climbed the Petit Clocher Du Portalet via the South East arete (ED-, F6B+). This is an amazing rock spire near the Orny hut. The rock is perfect, the route was dry and there is a newly equiped abseil line straight down from the summit back to the bags. As well as the south east arete, there are many other good lines on all the other faces.

Greg and i had a slightly easier day climbing with some friends at La Duchere crag near Les Contamines Montjoie. This is a great gneiss crag with routes upto 5 pitches in length from F2 to F7C+. It was our third rock type in 4 days.
