Ref Tissi is just barely visible, it's on the right, the tiny bump on the jagged slope.

We met in Geneva, hung out in Chamonix (i) for a couple days, which was just time enough for another visit to Aiguille du Mid, then we took the train to Finhaut where we began our hike. Here we are in Finhaut, stoking up for the days ahead.
