Mixed emotions

For those of you that like the Di Gilbert Mountaineering Facebook page, this news won't be new.

Back in 2012, Alison Culshaw (Off Piste Performance) and Catrin Thomas (long suffering ski buddy, climbing buddy and drinking buddy for the past 17 years) took it upon us to try and complete the famous Patrouille Des Glaciers.

Now, if it wasn't for the fact the race was halted at the Col de Reiderman due to the snow conditions, we would have completed it.  We had always said that we would race again and having just heard a couple of days ago that our entry has been accepted into the 2014 race, I don't know whether to cry or laugh.

So Mr Winter, sort yourself out because this girl needs to get the skinning in.
