I'm in Cogne (Italian Alps) ice climbing with Jim Gayler.
We experienced some interesting ice conditions over the last few days. Due to the heavy snowfall and associated high avalanche risk, we've been in the Lillaz area and routes are coming into nick nicely!
Cascade de Lillaz & Loie routes, and checking out a few others...
The Cogne Ice Opening festival opened last night, through today and the weekend, so the whole area got extremely busy today : )
Dropping to minus 11 now, grabbing an early start to get on some classic routes tomorrow!
Another great use for a Red Scaffolding business card, thanks Jazz : )
