Seeking Chamonix alpine partner April 8–11

Looking for partners to do alpine routes out of Chamonix. Open to various objectives with a preference for longer routes with a variety of rock, snow, and ice.

Me: 35 years old American climber with a 13 year solid background of climbing on rock (trad lead to YDS ~5.9/10, French 5c/6a, British E1 5a), on ice (lead to WI4), and committing alpine routes. I’ve done several 14,000 foot (4,000m) peaks and climbed in the Mont Blanc massif a little bit. Have a bit of experience as a backcountry skier. I’ve got gear with me for just about anything, except didn’t bring a rope and will be renting skis.

Email me at or text/call my mobile, which I’m hoping should have service in Chamonix: +44 7852 956319. (If all else fails, try my US Google Voice number—which I can check via wifi—at +1-206-552-9480, or Skype me at justin_rolfe-redding).

I’ll be arriving in Chamonix late on Friday night (April 7), and need to catch the shuttle out of Chamonix Tuesday evening (April 11).

I speak English and a bit of German.
