Assault on SaultJune 3, 2017 in France

Chamonix on way up. Enjoyable climbing at average 3.5% but slightly scary: potential rock falls to the left and potential cyclist falls to the right, plus the eternal threat of being caught in a thunderstorm.
Camping above Sault, rain looks probable.Read more
