When it’s hot outside, I find myself dreaming of winter adventures; trudging up a sketchy spine ridges, or skinning up toward a summit before the sun breaks. I love seeing my breath in the light of my headlamp, and listening to my slow and steady breathing. It’s therapeutic. Winter can’t come soon enough, but I will settle for fall.
A group of climbers makes their way along a well traveled ridge off the top of the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix, France. I came here on a few trips when I used to work for Camp4 Collective, and It was definitely one of my favorite locations. Great food, great crew, beautiful landscapes, amazing access. It really is one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever been, and I look forward to getting back there in the future.
