    The meet this year is to the Aosta Valley; through the Mont Blanc tunnel and then less than an hours drive into Italy. The campsite is close to Aosta at 600m above sea level, so should be warm. We will be camping at Camping Monte Bianco (well named as its got easy access to the Mont Blanc range via the fantastic new cable car at Courmayeur, which goes direct to the snowline and Torino Hut). Details of prices etc. are on their website:

    They just need confirmation of actual numbers 3 weeks before so let me know you are coming and I will start a spreadsheet to put on the forum nearer the time.
    See you there!

    Ukclimbing has a bit of gen. on the rock climbing in the area. https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/map/
    For big mountains, I wouldn’t mind a re-match with the Grand Paradiso (4061m). There appears to be a train station near to the camp site (if it is open) and it seems to go as far as Pre-St-Didier, (about a mile from Courmayeur). It might be handy if cars/vans aren’t available sometimes(?) It looks like there’s some rafting places in the valley too.
