Framing the Grandes Josasses

Today's shot comes from inside the Couvercle Hut that sits between the Glacier de Leschaux and the Glacier de Talefre in the French Alps.

It's already been over 5 years since this photograph was taken. On Feb. 19, 2008 I had done one of my most rewarding climbs to date. The Lagarde Direct on the North East face of Les Droites in the Mount Blanc Massif.  I took the photo the morning after in the Couvercle hut as my climbing partner Unai and I were getting ready to leave and walk back down to Chamonix. The window of the hut perfectly framed the Grandes Jorasses.
