European Guiding, Monte Rosa

Italian Guiding Insignia 

After spending 2 weeks floating around the Chamonix valley the skies cleared and the guiding season started in full. My first European guiding trip turned out to be the incredible Monte Rosa Traverse, summiting six, 4000 meter peaks and spending 4 nights in the exceptional Italian Huts including the Margherita Hut at 4556 meters (the highest in Europe).
