Alps has Everything to Offer!

Hello from Chamonix, France

The last couple of days have been amazing weather with almost record setting temperatures in the Alps. Sunny skies have dominate the mountain landscape.

We have had several trips all over the mountains during the weekend. They all enjoyed the sunny weather and had to apply ample amounts of sunscreen.

One of the beauty of climbing in the Alps, is there are plenty of options. The past couple of days trips have been enjoying some of the world class multi-pitch rock climbs on granite. Other teams have been climbing alpine ridges in Switzerland.

Below are a few photos of what the Alps has to offer.

Have a good day and will post more soon.
