Climbing "Contamine" on Petit Jorasses West-Face (Chamonix, FR)
Voie Contamine, TD, VI, HD 650m, 31.7.2001
After an very wet Bivouac with Jens on Scheidegg-Wetterhon w-piller in an horrible thunderstorm I went to Chamonix with Klaus Minges, where we got one of the best Weekends in 2001. On our way back to the Lechaux hut we started with some shorter routes on the crags below the Envers des Aiguilles hut. We were amazed how smooth a glacier can make the hard granite. Next day on Petit Jorasses w-face friction was a lot better. We enjoied the whole route very much.The last day of our long weekend we spent on the Envers des Aiguilles hut and climbed "Bienvenue au Georges V" on Premiere Pointes des Nantillons.
