Greg and i headed into the Albert Premier Hut on thursday 25th June with the intention of climbing the Forbes Arete which has been seeing a few ascents. Unfortunately, when we got up on friday morning lightning storms surrounded the Mont Blanc Massif. We still managed to climb a smaller summit (Petitie Fourche, 3520m, Facile) during a clearing in the weather. This little peak saved a day. Photos on Greg Boswells site.
We may now head to Les Ecrins to do some top class alpine rock on peaks such as Aiguille Dibona.
