Chironico by winter...

As you know, I've been to Chironico not so long ago and temps were not to our advantages.
I was really funny to walk to the boulders with almost 50cm of snow and the cold was not helping either.

We had some fun anyway, being the only climbers around. One thing to know about if you wind up climbing there with similar conditions, there are two places that allow climbing, "La soucoupe roof" and "Alphane moon roof". there might be other climb able places but then it would require a long walk in the snow and without proper equipment to walk on the snow it is just too complicated...


The parking place... Better bring a shovel to make a way and a good place for the tents...
 

The "Soucoupe" roof. Easy to clean

 This picture below shows that cold makes everything harder... Like we used to say, living in a fridge all day is quite funny sometimes...All gets frozen, stoves gas canisters as well... So better make a fire, oh yeah buy some fire starters and dry wood otherwise you won't go far...

Frozen towel...
 Alphane moon, 8a had its top hold broken. It's now been glued back on so it makes a nice place to climb with one 8a and its sit, 8B.
Stalactites !!

Below is a picture of a cool project, which I got close on but we decided to leave after spending two days climbing there.
