Cabane Chanrion to Cabane des Vignettes, 5hr 15m +870m 13.8km
What a great day! An early start with breakfast at 5am and out walking before the sun was up. Down hill and around the corner to start the climb to the Glacier d'Otemma. It was actually an ice gradual gradient that stretched out for kilometres (three Glaciers coming into one!). Time for a little refresher course on self and partner rescue form Crevasses, with ice screws and the and pullies etc. Then it was on our way again up to the Col de Chemotane (3204m), across another Glacier plateau towards the Col de Vignettes, and and traverse a snow hang to the next Hut, perched on the top of a cliff.
Chris, Sarah, Roy and Annika blogging around to keep in touch with family and friends all around.
