An 8hr slog to finish up. Beautiful views as we continue along the western balcony (the range opposite mt Blanc across the Chamonix valley). Very steep climbs and traverses with the odd ladder thrown in. After consuming a spectacular omelet at refuge la chat. We started the final 2.5hr descent to Les Houches through pine forests via steep zigzag trails.
Finally a celebratory beer at Les Houches while waiting for the bus back to Chamonix. Absolutely knackered and hoping there are some new knees growing on the back of some mouse in a laboratory somewhere ready for my return.
