September in Arolla

~ Monday 1st September 2008

Good scrambling at the Pas de Chevre yesterday. This route is a great thing to do on the way to the Dix hut.

Above the Pas de Chevre, Mont Blanc de Cheilon behind             

Now we're into September the Alps are quiet, only 12 people in the hut last night! A spectacular thunderstorm cleared to leave a starry morning, but quickly clouded over and soon we could easily have been in the Cairngorms....

Heavy snow on the way up the Pigne d'Arolla


Luckily the cloud cleared and we got good views from the top...then more cloud.
