Ice bouldering near Chamonix

By D.R. Richards

Oops.

I got some shots of this ice climber practicing on the glacier just near the entrance of the Mont Blanc tunnel in Chamonix, France. It’s a great place to practice with good top-rope sites.

There are more images but these two seemed the most dramatic, especially with the gaping circular crevasse below. It reminds me of the threat of circling the drain.

Where do you start? How do you  lower to flat ground? Not to worry, there was a good ice ledge where climbers can tie in. Ykes!
