Pointe Lachenal, Haruld e Maud 5.10 – Chamonix Rock Climbing

Rock climbing at almost 4000m high above broken, expansive glaciers… in early June.  Ill take it!  Chamonix is really just unbelievable when it come to the access potential.  A one hour walk from the Aiguille du midi lift you have a life times worth of epic alpine rock climbing.  From 5 to way too many pitches.   Yesterday I teamed up with American mountain guide Danny Ulhmann and bad ass Italian steep skier Gulia Monego to climb the Pointe Lachenal via the route “Harold e Maud” a striking 9 pitch route of crack climbing to 5.10.   Beautiful sunny day in the alpine; it really doesn’t get too much better.  Chamonix rock climbing, check it out.
