It is five years since we were last here - on the previous occasion, in September, the weather was unsettled and cold - at the end of a 10 day spell we decided we had done with camping, and we haven't pitched a tent since - in fact we sold all the camping gear once we got back home!
We spent a week in Martigny, which pleasant, and not too warm, unlike this time last year in France. Then we headed up to Arolla, a place I had read about back in the 1969 and always fancied a look around. On the day we arrived I did a clutch of routes on the local crag, which brought my tally for May up to 102 - that's something that doesn't happen very often.
