Pete's Trip Reports

Haute Route - Sept 2007

Early morning flight to Geneva, followed by budget minibus connection, had us in sitting in the sun in a Chamonix cafe by saturday lunchtime! After a leisurely lunch we stocked up on a few things, such as camping gas cannister, and then headed off towards Argentière. The path wasn't overly unpleasant, quite quickly getting on to easy footpath through trees, and later on getting a bit hillier. At Argentière we got a room in the gite at the very bottom of the village, pleasant place and not too expensive, then nipped out to the supermarket to stock up on supplies for the next few days.
