What a great day in mountain share with my long time friend Wim. This year we still didn’t skied together, that was time to speak about our respective season and projects. The thing is Wim just come back from the Patrouille des Glaciers with a full skimo winter and I…. not really. It’s always the fear to be the slowly one with big warm I hardly support. We stared easy from the Simplon hospice, watching Hubschhorn north face we skied together two years ago together. The ridge to the top of Monte Leone is beautiful and a part of me would like to jump in the teasing NE slope but I know a rappel festival would wait for me at low part.
At the top I can see the tracks of Davide who gave me the idea to come here. Wim with a empty steep season doesn’t feel to drop in the north face. I jump alone so. Snow is great! Thanks Davide.
Wim ended the way back a bit later and we went back to the Hospice happy and with a deserved glass of apple juice. Always happy to come back to Simplon and great to see big faces are ready.
