Grand Finale

As the Foehn built in Cham, we headed south for one final trip before Michelle headed back to UK. Little did we know that the Foehn would blow so hard at valley level to lift roofs and take down hundreds on trees.

Italy as usual was superb; coffee, pizza, seafood, gelato, sunshine and of course great rock.

Italy Rocks

We went to Italy a while back to rock climb at the stunning crag of Arnad. Great coffee, friends, sunshine and rock. What more could you want. Cedric had a long rope so I loaded up with about 25 quick draws, probably my heaviest sports rack ever, and climbed a 60 m pitch up one of the pillars on stunning rock. 

Michelle high on the pillar.

Another good day was had at local crag Pierre a Voix near Sallanches which has this amazing 35 m pillar with a 6b and 6b+.
