Mont Rouge Walk

So, while Malcolm went off to do some ‘real mountaineering’, (i.e. conquering snow-capped peaks with crampons, ice-axe and a qualified guide), I offered to take his wife, Helen, on one of my favourite walks in the Val d’Hérens.  The ridge above the ski resort of Thyon 2000 takes you over some smaller peaks to Mont Rouge at 2,491m / 8,173 ft.   On a fine day the views extend in all directions to no less than 52 peaks over 2,000m / 6,562 ft.  Fabulous!
