Monday morning dawned and the Foehn wind was howling. It was totally overcast meaning visibility was poor, and it was cold. I wasn’t expecting too much but headed into the teeth of the wind up at the Fornet knowing that, if we could get over the Col Pers, we would be in the lee and protected.
The Fornet in those conditions is the only place where we might find a little fresh snow as well so it was worth a gamble. We ended up with a fantastic morning in pretty tough conditions
