One serve of Climbing Envy please. Served fresh from Europe by Chris Warner

While we can't get over there, photos from Mont Ambassador Chris Warner's recent climbs will have to do. As a mountaineer and climber, Chris has been a member of the Mont Ambassador team for over 10 years. We've outfitted him for his expeditions including many summits of the World's great peaks.

From the French Alps

“The Central Pillar of Freney, 7a+ (24) a sort after route made famous by tragedy when disaster struck when a four man French team and a three man Italian team were racing for the summit of Mont Blanc in 1961. A storm hit the climbers and four climbers died, one of the survivors being Walter Bonatti. A month later it was completed by a team led by Chris Bonington.”
