Today it was raining cats and elephants at 5.30am, too bad I had committed to climbing my first Hors Cat mountain.

Off I set first up Col de Leschaux which is similar to the one in twenty ...

... Dogma, worth probably around $12k to $15k. I figured nobody would mess with mine with that thing sitting there.

We got our stuff up to the room and I needed a rest, so we relaxed for a couple of hours being serenaded by a band warming up for a concert in the parking lot next to the hotel. We made our way into Centre Ville, which was just a 5 minute walk from the hotel. There we found a pizzaria to have supper at. The meal was pretty ...
