Camping at Glacier 3000 Diablerets
Updated: 6 December 2013
2013 started with fantastic snow conditions for the winter
and spring, so much powder that we never really got to ski any spring
snow, quite incredible.
The ice climbing season was no slouch either
giving us a late but cold and reliable period of ice with many low lying
routes in great condition.
After the spring we made an expedition to
Denali for the Denali IFMGA expedition symposium. This was very successful
in term of political relationships to the Denali park and government, work
shopping of expedition techniques, and even all of us made the summit. A
great trip in perfect conditions.
The summer proved to be a big success
as well. The stormy spring and early summer gave the glaciers plentiful
snow to make good snow bridges and safe conditions high up. Although not
without avalanche danger in June when the temperatures rose significantly.
Since the end of the season a quick trip new routing in Ireland paid
dividends with a handful of high quality new routes climbed on the perfect
granite at Cuit Island.
And more recently a trip to Sardinia with the
local Swiss guides made a relaxing end to the summers activities.
snow has arrived in the Alps and skiing and ice climbing tours are on
I wish you a good winter and please let me know if I can be
of assistance to help you achieve you ice climbing, alpine climbing, ski
touring and off piste ski goals.
