Just back down from a very cold three days finishing off the end of my Berghaus shoot. Shooting with Philippe Gatta we managed to brave the cold and get some nice shots taken of their new Active Shells range which they will be launching next winter. Conditions for the moment are pretty much the same as they’ve been for the last two weeks. There are definitely some big lines to go for as well for the moment with the Brenva side of Mont Blanc looking surprisingly good (Cechinnel Nominee on the Grand Pilier D’Angle is looking amazing for the moment).
Reports of the Ginat in perfect condition with first time placements all the way. The Verte is still looking amazing. Oh and Pinnochio is fat as hell right now, though seeing a fair bit of traffic by the sounds of it.
Lots of climbing porn below….
