Chatelard Ice

With a distinctly rubbish forecast we decided to head up to Chatelard, just over the Swiss border. We headed up towards the Frigor sector and although it took a bit of finding we eventually got to the routes and found them all in pretty stiff condition. Frigor looked very steep and thin for a 4, and the 2 grade 3s were both pretty thin. Nevertheless Johnny and Nick headed up the furthest right of the Grade 3s (sorry, I don't have the guidebook) and Peter and I wimped out and took photos before retiring from the wind and cold and went for a beer. It's a hard life.
