with Oliver Bontempts & David Ravenel /Summer 2015

Our goal this year is to climb up the Aiguille Verte.

My mate David, mountain guide and photographer would like to come along to take pictures. We will be 3, the magic number!

This summer, conditions are very dries…so dry that a rock fall below us.
Reaching the bivy spot is such a relief ! The top is a couple hundred meters above our head.

As you never know how cold it’s gonna be during the night, packing you bag can turn into nightmare …But you have to make a choice between weight and comfort…I’ m happy that this day I made the right one ! I slept like a baby in my warm sleeping bag ,suspended several hundred meters from the ground …

The Aiguille Verte is a dream for many climbers …as Gaston Rebuffat said : before the Verte you are an alpinist, after you are an mountaineer »
