Back home from a fantastic summer in The Alps. The weather up last week has been amazing. My stint  started cold and sunny with a lot of lying snow from the end of June up to mid July then we had sizzling heat of 30 degrees plus in Chamonix. 4 Tour of Mont Blanc's finished and some very nice folk from all over the world including the USA, Canada, Romania, Korea, Australia, Germany, France and the UK. A few days at home and filling out Russian Visa application forms (yawn, yawn and very time consuming!). Guiding on Mount Elbrus from 18th August. Hope to get a few days out in the hill before that, if the mountains of paperwork get flattened that is!
