Below is a list of those people who may be still interested in the Alps trip as far as I know. Looks like we will probably have a group of 6 – 8 going.
If anybody else is interested then please reply to this post.
Judging by the guidebooks and what people have said, Vallorcine has a good campsite and has everything a mountain-lover could want! (and a lot right from the campsite, with little or no driving): rock, walking, scrambling, biking, mountaineering, via ferrata.
