Ever since I have been to Chamonix for the first time the town has been a fascination. And the wish to go back has grown stronger every day.
Now is the time to do so! By the end of July I am going to go there for an entire week trying to climb Montblanc. As part of a Summit Club trip I am acclimatizing over the course of a week and the tackle the highest mountain in Europe (as long as you consider Elbrus to be in Asia).
The best thing about having a goal and a date: You tread training so much more serious. After logging 700 vertical meters in an hour last weekend I am going for endurance this weekend. The Watzmann Überschreitung is a long and demanding tour. Let’s see, how this works out.
