April 6th and Day 90

Our final day to play

We are heading home tomorrow so obviously the we have to do the iconic Vallee Blanche.

Armed with Chris’s lovely boot crampons I am even looking forward to the Arete,

A bit of a wait to get on the lift but hey we have all day ..  I have already declared the intention of “No James Bond track” pretty sure the snow will run out part way down it anyway.

20180406 - Vallee Blanche

A variation on the classic as still not brave enough to go too off the beaten track without a guide.

Oooh and we have instructions …

Beware Parents & children .. apparently.

The loop down from the Italian side looks lovely
