Alps trip

It looks like the Frendo Spur and Cosmiques Ridge on Aiguille de Midi is to be our destination for next week so the packing has started:-

The Frendo is one of those routes with a lot of decision-making:- go light and try to do it one day, with the risk of poor conditions on the top snow / ice fields during the afternoon:

or bivvy overnight and wait for cold conditions next morning with all the weight that entails ?

Anyway back to training :- big boot climbing on slippery limestone at Symonds Yat !
