La Somone, Brevent August 2009

Saturday 22 August
We return to the Brevent.
Today it is shrouded in mist.

We climb a multipitch climb, La Somone, instead of the one we wanted Crakoukass. It is a grade easier, but still has some fantastic pitches of exciting climbing on its pillars.

There are numerous points at which you could walk off, which makes it seem less of an adventure, more friendly. Every now and then the mist is so thick that we can’t see each other.
