As if the arrival of the snow in Chamonix weren't enough to convince Charlie to hang up his rock shoes, a trip to the slightly forgotten Chamonix classic, the Aiguilles Dorees leaves Matt and Charlie disappointed.
Despite the early, and very cold start, Charlie and Matt make it to the top of the plateau only to find that their climbing plans have been scuppered by natural disasters.
For more in-depth information about the state of the routes featured in this and other episodes of Chalk & Granite, visit Charlie's blog: http://chamconditions.blogspot.fr/.
