Bank holiday blues

Fabulous weather this weekend. The temperature is just perfect and the sky crystal blue. We are still in training for the tour of the Monte Rosa and have just got our new shoes - the eRide by Scott. They are light as feathers and give a terrific spring to your step.

We thought we'd put them to the test with a hike up to the Cabane du Grande Mountet. Its a long old way and 1330m of ascent, but you get wonderful views of the glaciers tumbling down from a cirque of mountains, including the 4000m Imperial Crown: Bishorn, Weisshorn, Zinalrothorn, Obergabelhorn and Dent Blanche
