I'm planning g on doing it in July with a tent. I'm spending the night before I start in Chamonix and will get my gas etc there to then get the train times houches.

Plenty of places to fill up with water from what I've seen so no need to carry more than 1 water bladder.

Old Glossop (say SK046948) up Doctor's Gate and along the Pennine Way at the top towards the Shelf Stones, thewould give a there and back route along the same path on fairly good going. 

Or you could continue back via [the forum doesn't allow me to print the name of a male chicken ] Hill SK059960, which is OKish  but damp going, if I remember rightly
Off to Ambleside in the Lake District for a long weekend. Walking up hills will be a change from my usual trail walking, it's been a while.

Mind you, when I booked it, I did so with the thought of snow on the hills, good photos and great scenery with my winter gear, however it looks nearer to shorts and tshirt weather.

Absolutely beautiful - almost Alpine.

Spot on - I think it's the way the sky makes the snow look blue - love days like that.

Photography / Re: My best pic of the day
« Last post by Innominate Man on Today at 16:10:15 »
Possibly way off topic for this forum but it is my best pic of the day .......... It was actually taken some time ago but only came across it earlier this week.

For those of a musical ear it is Dave Gilmour's iconic Black Strat.
Taken at an exhibition called ' Their mortal remains ' the strat is obviously the focus of the pic and on the wall behind it there is a photo of it in use.

For all those who ever listened to any of his playing which sent you into raptures (think Comfortably Numb) - you may appreciate this.
Incidentally Mrs I, didn't come into this exhibition and she doesn't see the point of a pic of any old black guitar  :o

Because they're made to order, and it's a one man operation.

I totally understand that, I was just wishing is was a bit short lead time!

In addition to IM's comments - best to check which refuges are open as some close mid September onwards in other parts of the alps (not sure about TMB ones).  You might be glad of one.
