Sharon getting into the climbing

It's not going to be easy getting thru to the top

already some reward looking south across the valley to St Gervais and the snowy Aiguille des Glaciers mountain

Sharon into the final steep climbing section

Made it up high to the Desert de Platé -- now the hiking is gentler

We find some chalets up here . . .

One is serving food . . . with two surprising local residents under the table

starting back out on the trail, Sharon encounters two more high-country inhabitants

Here about to get down into the steep section

Sharon going thru a route both below and above the cliffs, with Mont Blanc beyond

Made it back down past the steepest part . . .

. . . to another look east across the valley to the Aiguille du Midi + Mont Blanc
