      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Chamonix Summer 2015

Recommended Posts

I'll be in Chamonix from June 27 - July 27 this summer. I have a friend joining me for the final week but am looking for climbing partners for the first 3 weeks of the trip. I'm looking to do as many alpine routes as possible. I climb in the WI/AI4 and easy 5.11 range and will drag to France all the group gear that would be needed to do these routes. I'm renting a studio apartment a few blocks away from the Midi tram for the month (1 BR, kitchen, living room, bathroom, etc.) and crashing with me is an option. Basically, if you can get yourself to Cham you'll have a partner, place to sleep, and a bunch of gear ready to go! Bonus points if you speak French, because I definitely don't. PM me with questions or interest.

Ah Oui. Ce-la m'intriuge. Quelle vois vous interese?

What routes have you got your eyes on? ( and what grade and dificulty would they be close to in the Yosemite Decimal System?)

Let me check travel costs.

Veuillez agréer, Monsieur, l'expression de ma considération distinguée.

Thanks for the interest everyone. I'll primarily be looking to climb long alpine rock routes in the 5.8 - 5.11- range, but would also be down for easier climbs on the classic peaks (Mt. Blanc). I don't have a lot of experience on mixed terrain but would be interested in doing easier steep snow/ice/mixed routes as well. I don't have a ton of specific routes in mind, but the Frendo looks ultra-classic and I have a couple guidebooks on the way to feed the stoke.

I don't see your answer to my pm...

I can understand if you're hesitant to rope up with an Old Fart

 

but if you're not finding partners, I'll be there during that time period, and looking for a partner...

Go to the Envers des aiguilles hut, and get your slab game on before going (most of the routes involve some sandbagged run out slabs).

 

Camptocamp has good (mostly in French) beta on routes
