Towards the Chamonix Aiguilles / by Eric Dacus


Looking out from the viewing platform on the Aiguille du Midi. Amazing that this terrain is lift-accessed (well, tram-accessed) from town. You can go from sipping your coffee to here in 30-40 minutes, which I think made it hard for my mind to come to grips with the scale of the place to start climbing something. Two and a half weeks was really just enough time to simply begin understanding.
