Paul Bonhomme scores two new Hautes-Alpes ski descents in two days


di

French mountain guide Paul Bonhomme completed two first ski descents in the Hautes-Alpes: the first on Mt. Guion (2060m) the second on Pointe des Aver (3089m).



Just before the lockdown French mountain guide Paul Bonhomme scored two interesting first ski descents in the Hautes-Alpes region of the French Alps. On Thursday 12 March Bonhomme  ascended to the 2060m high foresummit of Mt. Guion, a rocky peak above Névache, which he ascended via the west face before making a "somewhat complicated 700m descent" down the same line. Despite the 5.4/E4 technical difficulties, he did so without having to resort to making any abseils.



Realising that conditions were prime, early the next day he set off up Pointe des Avers above Saint Véran in the Queyras valley, following the mountain’s north ridge to the summit at 3089 meters. Once again he descended via the line of ascent and, once again, he did not resort to abseils. The 800m line has been graded 5.3/E4
