Cascade d'armancette

Felt good to be back on ice again

Last time experience still in the head but this route on the d'Armancette is a brilliant route at an easy grade lll
There is a lot of snow at the moment and one should take care when approaching since there are some big snow fields above. So don't pick a day after snow fall to go here. It's avalanche prone as h_ll
The surrounding are great though and there is a lot of potential for some adventure climbs. Either by continue up the rock and mixed terrain when the ice stops or climbing some of the rock ridges on the sides of the valley
The options for some great ski descents a numberous!
I have picked some out for the next days...

the cascade
A good link, as so many times is the one to camp to camp,

And as it wasn't enough the decent back to the car is just something...
