6th September, Le Tour – ridge of the Aiguillette des Posettes ca 1800m – Chalet Alpin du Tour, Le Tour 1453m, 1.5 h
I once again took the train from Basel to Montroc, this time alone and in fine weather, arriving at the Chalet Alpin du Tour in the early afternoon. I soon established telephone contact with Peter who was descending the ridge of the Aiguillette des Posettes somewhere above me. He had arrived several days before from England and had been able to repeat the TMB from Courmayeur without encountering any rain or low cloud. We met on the crest above Tre-le-Champ, from where we had good if not completely clear views of Aiguille Verte and Mont Blanc. We spent the evening at the Chalet Alpin du Tour with a completely different anticipation of the following day’s walks from that which we had in July.
