|RIDING THE BOX|
Having grown weary of climbing in big boots with heavy packs, Eva and I went looking for some lift accessed splitter granite. An early morning ride across the Panoramic Mont-Blanc telecabine left us with an easy 1 hr. walk to the Satellites du Tacul.
|HEADED TO THE PLAYGROUND|
We chose a classic Bonatti route on the Chandelle combined with a direct finish up Piola’s Tabou. Just SW of the Grand Capucin and Trident.
After 5 gorgeous pitches a cold wind began to blow. No stress, 45 minutes later we were back on the glacier and casually walked back to the lift. Another perfect day of Semi-Luxuriant Alpinism.
