Papillons Arête

Current best estimate is that we were on the Papillons Arête on the Aiguille du Peigne on the 13th August, but the date is a bit uncertain as it tends to rely on the sequence in which I’ve numbered my slides.

In the lead is Dave, with Graham in the pink pants, and Mary on the crack to the left.
