Voie Georges - Wednesday 25th August

Voie Georges, a lovely route on the slabs above the Mer de Glace.
We climbed a route alongside Voie Georges last year so thought that the start would be familiar but strangely enough, it wasn't! In fact we managed to do a whole pitch before we were back on ground we remembered. Later, we found out that this was due to the glacier retreating which meant a whole new section of slab was exposed.
We picked our way through the damp streaks to get onto the steep granite slabs and some exciting crack climbing too. There were some strange waterworn pockets in the rock at one of the belays. The setting is fantastic with views across to the glacier to the Grands Jorassses.
