Tech Alpine Course July 2019

Another week of tailored technical alpine climbing training with Ed and Vivek this week – concentrating on efficient and fluid climbing style on varied alpine terrain.

Rich put together an excellent program, mixing longer alpine rock routes, with classic ridge climbs and plenty of skills and crevasse rescue training etc throughout the course.

On the final day a 6am pickup was called for, in order to head over to the Emosson Dam for a huge day out on the Perrons Traverse – with the boys leading the first section of the route, then Rich cranking up the speed to complete the rest of the traverse which is a very loooong way! A 13 hour day all told, but brilliant climbing and a great way to finish the week.
