If you aren't paying attention?

My friend Jon..did a nice (remember "nice" can be a relative thing;)  trip the other day.

I love traverses although I haven't done all that many.  But the long day (or days) out can be great fun.

Jon's adventure has to be one of the better ones I have seen lately.

The line: 41 Km and 5000m of ascent. Les Contamines to Aiguille du Midi

41 fooking Kms?!  25 miles in the alpine!  Chit man..that is a long day's walk by any standard.  Good on ya!

The rest of his adventure is here:

Not that Jon would ever admit it but he  has become is quite the mountain animal.  Think not and wonder if he climbs?  Look here:

Some great stuff Jon!  Now stop dicking around and go back to work.....with a rope on next time, will ya :)  I would like to see that amazing photography continue!

Jon's real job:
