For my final few days in the zone I let out for the hills with Justin Sweeny intent on getting up a summi or two. The weather was marginal and as we made our way to the Envers hut it was a miracle we found the way
Justin at the routefinding crux of the approach
We attacked the Aiguille de La République at 3am and by 9:30 were 2/3rds of the way up
The higher we got, the more snow covered the rocks
Positions = Mega!
But the weather went southbound
Back in town it was properly festive, one guy I met at Elevation 1904 described it as the best corner on Earth. I thought about it for a second, scanning my rolodex of fun places and then nodded in agreeance.
