A frustrating spring

So we are already mid-May and the steep skiing tally (or general touring come to that) so far stands at 2 days :-(
Lots of work, plus poor weather on my weeks off late April/early May have left me frustrated so far. To add to that, last week I was running an IRATA rope access training course in Switzerland and missed a great window with the Mallory, Barbey, Tour Ronde North face, Col des Courtes and more all seeing descents in good conditions. A weird week though, with Will witnessing a fatal accident on the Tour Ronde, and reports coming in of another nasty on the west face of the Peclet in the Vanoise, hence psyche a bit low among the usual team...
That said, it was good to catch up with Fred, Yann & co at Altimum in Palezieux last week - Yann & I managed to cope with a trilingual training group, with trainees from France, Switzerland, Chile, Sweden and Thailand!
