Today we headed up to the pretty 'Aiguille L'Index' to train, high above Chamonix. For most of the day we climbed in the cloud, until we had a brief burst of sunshine that allowed us just enough time to get a quick pic! We decided not to wear rock climbing shoes, but bulky climbing boots for good practice, for the upcoming Himalayan climbing in the Fall. It was a super nice rock route up to the summit and then a few pitches of rappelling to get back down. A big lesson learnt today though; always tie hair back when descending, as mine got caught in the rappel device!!
