Parachuted - no, not literally - into the Alps for a couple of days by MHW. New gloves, new waterproofs, ridiculously mild temperatures meant NO ICE to climb, so went for a wander across a glacier wearing snow shoes. Bizarrely mellow, nice to be up a mountain, pining for Andean peaks, funny not having an axe or crampons or prussiks and noticing the shadowy, tell-take signs of crevasses under the snow. Not a bad day at the office.
