DAY 5, MOEDE ANTERNE to LES HOUCHES (via Servoz)
Ascent: 279 m
Descent: 1252 m
Distance: 20 km
Time on trail: 7:20 – 12:30
I decided finally to skip the ascent of Le Brevent and make a more comfortable detour down to the Chamonix valley. I felt relieved with the decision.
At Les Houches campsite under the watching eye of Mont Blanc. The campsite was full of climbers, most from Poland, getting ready for climbing the Mont Blanc. I really loved the heroic climbing vibes.
The weather turned much worse in the evening and dark heavy clouds crept into the valley Chamonix. The forecast for the next day wasn’t promising either. Perhaps would be a good idea to keep a rest day as my knees were worryingly sore after so much sliding in the snow. The end of the first stage (out 0f six).
