All Good Things …..

Our final days ice climbing in the vau di Cogne. Another wonderful day. We awoke to leaden skies and heavy snow falling. Amending our plans to climb Pattinaggio Artistico due to possible avalanches, Andy decided that a climb called Chandelle Levure, would be a good choice. The final pitch of this four pitch climb being a grade 4. By the time we had walked to the start of the climb the sun was out.We hadn’t anticipated the sun on our backs although the  we did get wet both in the cave, formed by icicles and on the vertical upper pitch. It was a great way to finish a near perfect week.

Neil and I can thoroughly recommend Andy Owen. He is a great guide who is also able to proved a substantial education in one line jokes.
