Hi - yep also on this tour - i havent done any of the wainrights / munros and so am very apprehensive!! However sometimes it is best not to know what to expect..........

Is anyone arriving into Geneva about 14.20 on the 13th - if so do you want to share the transport into Chamonix?

I'm flying in from Liverpool but don't arrive in Geneva until 16.15  .I was going to book a transfer to Chamonix with mountain drop offs..Looks like I'll miss the briefing at 18.00 so may need to get the info 2nd hand .Exodus said they have left a note for the guide about late arrival though.Look forward to meeting you and anyone else on this excursion

I'm sure you wont be the last to arrive and i'm sure people will still be in the lobby by the time you arrive  - am intrieged how you can get the backpack down to 8 kg given that the bag weighs 1.5 and i like my snack bars!!

Ah well i just bought a smaller backpack - 35l in order to make sure i dont overpack!

I am also about to invest in some poles - i hired some before & only used them on 1 day of the trip i was on but i think it might be worth having some now - do you have any recommendations or at least things i should be looking for when buying them?

I have never used walking poles so unfortunately I cannot advise you.I know Exodus recommend using them but I've always considered them as being something else to carry.Two more weeks now,roll on
