Euro Pine

After another summer spent training for another ACMG guides exam im not sure how I figured it would be a good idea to fly to another country and go be cold on big mountains for another month.  Clearly the more sensible thing would have been to go sport climbing or surfing in some lovely tropical destination .  But nevertheless the thought of splitter granite, telepheriques, pain au chocolat, brie and cheap wine lured me back to Chamonix for a month of alpine climbing and im STOKED

About time...

Well I have been working (or at least telling myself I have been) on making a blog for about a year now.  Usually I spend 5 minutes trying to set up the title and run in to technical problems and give up for another couple of weeks.   As you can see I have now somehow figured out how to make the title and even put a photo there (the climber is not me its local bad ass John Freeman climbing some real sketch) so I now have no more reasons to keep procrastinating and no choice other than to start littering the internet with my thoughts and recaps of recent adventures.  
Hope you enjoy...
