Dent Blanche (4357m), 11 Aug 2019

Another great day in the mountains. This time, with my friend "jurassien" Jeremy Buache, we climbed the Dent Blanche (4357m) on the Valais Swiss Alps.
We climbed it via the normal way, the South ridge.
On the 1st day we walked from the Évoléne valley to the Dent Blanche cabane/refuge 3507m. It was quite a walk.... 3h!!! 
On the 2nd day, we left the hut at 4am. We wanted to climb all the easy part of the route while it was dark, and get to the most technical part (the climb of the Gendarmes, there are 4 of them) when the sun was rising.
We got to the summit a bit before 7am. We had an amazing sunrise and some great panoramic views of all the Alps!

Mezzalama 2019 !!!!
Thanks Carron Scrimgeour for this "cadeau empoisonné" :) Next time you ask me to replace you in a race, I'll check the weather forecast first :D :D :D !!!
An amazing race but in horrible and hard weather conditions (very windy & very cold)... 
Thanks to my team mates, Ben Bradford and Jonathan Bracey, for this unforgettable journey (40km and 4000m D+) between Cervinia and Gressoney!
Congratulations to all the participants and finishers!

Grand Massif Assaut, Flaine, 9 Mar 2019

Ten years have passed since the last time i've used my "orange" super sexy combinaison de Ski Alpinisme :D (it was on Pierra Menta 2009 with Guillaume Garnier).
But one thing is sure: after today's result, this Combinaison will become my "fetish" SkiMo racing suit :D :D :D
Merci Alexandre Aubert pour cette agréable matinée! Difficile qui a les fesses les plus belles dans notre combi "sexy" ;)
