Jannu East Face. Guys spent night under the ridge, at 7070 m by altimeter (7297 m by tracker). Options: to continue climbing via the French route or to go down. It's still snowing. Visibility is poor. And the team, as usual, will be to solve on the real situation on the mountain.

My old housemate from Squamish, @skiericcarter, was visiting Cham for a few days, and we had a nice little reunion. Although the climbing on Pointe Lachenal and the Aiguille du Midi was certainly great, perhaps the highlight was meeting Simone (she’s in the fourth photo) while replenishing calories at @hibouchamonix. Simone is 102 years old, but is still sharp and interesting to chat with. She grew up in Paris and of course her native language is French, but she also speaks English perfectly, which is not very common for a French person of her age. Her family is half Jewish, and during the Nazi occupation of France she moved around the country to avoid capture (in July 1942, 13,152 Parisian Jews were sent to Auschwitz). She finished dental school in 1938 (when French women could not yet vote), one of two women in a graduating class with fifty men. She said that some patients would leave the clinic as soon as they saw she was female, but many were forced to overcome their sexist views because after the war there were fewer men in many professions. She came to Chamonix often for ski vacations, and eventually decided to move to Chamonix full time. At 94 years old she hiked up to Chalet de la Floria, a hike of about 300 meters of elevation gain. Chamonix is a valley stuffed to the brim with badasses... perhaps Simone is one of the most badass of all? @patagonia_climb @petzl_official @scarpaspa @plum_officiel @ Chamonix, France
