WHAT ARE WE DOING?
At the height of the 'Golden Age of Alpinism' the Alpine Club established an aesthetically pleasing route from Chamonix to Zermatt avoiding the tourist traps of the day. We want to do the same thing.
When George Leigh Mallory was asked why he was climbing Everst he said, "Because it is there." We are going not so much because the High Level Route is there, but more because it may soon not be.
