FATMAP difficulty grade
Jamais deux sans trois - the French say. ..
but for now, this is it. To say conditions have been difficult doesn’t do this expedition justice but the tricky snow, terrible weather and even worse rock have made the risk too high. With 60mm of rain forecast over the next 3 days Fred and Benj have made the difficult decision stop.
For now. Descending to the safety of the Refuge de Leschaux, the guys put up an incredibly brave effort today making it over the Triolet but a very near miss for Benj and countless other close calls mean this just simply isn’t worth it. Down but not out, for now this is over but the story and the journey won’t end here. We will no doubt share more once they are back in town and safe but for now, thank you for following along.
