yesterday's view of Periades ridge, which we will climb across to reach the Glacier du Mont Mallet

skiing down from the Refuge Requin early in the morning

climbing up the Periades glacier, below the Dent du Geant

Doug climbing, with Pete + Geoff  (obscured by a bit of Ken's glove)

looking back down our steep climb now completed  (two other skiers not in our party)

After rappelling down from top of our climb, we start skiing down the Glacier du Mont Mallet
(What's that tooth peeking over behind the col?)

our ski tracks, navigating the crevasses of the glacier -- with Mont Mallet behind

Rick about to navigate through the mist -- and we got safely down to the Montenvers train station
