Scott-why should I give a shit

After arriving at Scotts for 19:00 friday it wasnt long before the VW red was loaded up and ready to sail, after a long 15hrs of driving (Scott) while i slept we eventually arrived in chamonix, the weather looked nice and I was starting to get that tingly feeling of excitement. we arrived at our apartment before deciding to park the van in the underground carpark. now this is where it all went wrong, short ceilings, closing doors and a complete maze of diffrent tunnels turn this simple parking mission into a full on indianna jones moment. after around an hr of putting the pieces of puzzles together we finally managed to escape the nightmare and continue our holiday.

After heading down town for food and long discussions we have decidedtomorrow to head up the col du tour to the foot of the auguille de chardonnet for a bivy before attempting the forbes arete early monday...

Weather looks good so hopefully next post will be a succseful trip report....

Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are
naught without prudence, and that a momentary negliance may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste; Look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end
