We are now in le tour. We had a long walk over fenetre d'arpette and col de balme. The refuge de balme is operated by the transylvanian alpine club. We are not members and were not welcome. We then descended to le tour where the caf hut was full. After some discussion we were allowed to camp in their donkey field. The main hut is full. To show our gratitude we have run up a bar bill. Tomorrow we will finish. Tonight it rains and the thunder roars now and again. Today vindicates the decision to bring tents.
