Climbing in the Alps, July 2014

 

On the Swiss/Italian border, about 13,600 feet above sea level. (Breithorn traverse)
The "hut" I slept in on Mont Blanc (doesn't look like July, does it?)
View from the Dome du Gouter, France
A snowy Matterhorn seen from Zermatt, Switzerland
Despite nasty weather, the Aiguilles Crochues Traverse was a nice challenge.
I was expecting a rock climb, but needed my snow and ice gear.
Need a Ricola?
