Aiguille du Plan

20 Jan

There been a while since the last post now, for several reasons.. I (Henrik) have had a little troubble with a knee. The rest of the guys have been on the mountain but with lack of snow and mostly suncriusing in Flegere there hasn`t really been much to write home about..

Anyways, since there hasn’t been any snow falling for a long time and high temps here lately we decided to do some trips around the Aiguille du Midi..

Mostly to get to know the terrain better, secondly with a hope to find some good snow. After a little planning around the breakfast-table yesterday the new plan became Aiguille du Plan 3613 mas. (a top on the ridge a little north-east of du Midi). The whole crew went up and started hiking, but realized that we didn`t have time to reach the top when we was about halfway up. So we returned to the matchbox for some tacos and vine-tasting with friends..

Our defeat on our way to the Aiguille du Plan was hard for Henning and Henrik. Therefore we(Henning and Henrik) dropped  the last part of the vine-tasting and got up early today.  To make it short, we reached the top (dropped the last 30m pure climbing, but still..). Unfortunately some fog came the last 50 hight-meters, but we got a few pics and OK snow on the decent:)

    Hei gutter. Håper dere har det bra, og ikke minst kult! Jeg er student ved Norges Idrettshøgskole, og skriver et foredrag om freeriding som skal presenteres på skolen. Jeg har brukt en del av bildene deres, både fordi de er kule og fordi de er nyttige for meg og vil vekke oppsikt på foredraget. Håper det er i orden! (Så får dere god reklame til gjengjeld). Mvh. Thor XO =)

      Hei Thor-Erik! Det går helt fint, så lenge du gir credits til Kollektivet! Kommer nok flere bilder utover, men forholdene i Chamonix akkurat nå suger. Lykke til med foredraget! Mulig å få sjekket det ut når du er ferdig, vært artig å se hvilken vinkling du har på freeriding? 😉
