Today the Alpine Ascents Matterhorn group team “Los Incognitos” left Chamonix and ride the Aguille du Midi and Panoramique lifts to Point Helbronner. After depositing our kit in the Torino Hut, we climbed the Aiguille Marbreés. While still relatively easy, this climb represented a step up in Alpine climbing from yesterday’s objective, and the team is getting used to moving roped up in the type of terrain that the Alps have to offer.
Everyone did well, cruising the terrain, and we are enjoying hut life on the Italian side of the Alps.
