Petit Enverse du Plan (Small Back-wall Run/Mala zadni stena)

A free-ride run from peak Aiguille du Midi (3898m) via Vallee Blanche (White valley) through glaciers Glaicer du Geant (Glacier of Giant) and Mer de Glace (See of Ice) and through Montenvers village to Chamonix (1000m). We traversed between the so called Grand Enverse du Plan and Petit Eneverse du Plan. Free-ride z Poledni jehly (3898m n. m.) do Chamonix (1000m n. m.) pres ledovce Obra a More ledu a obec Montenverse. Traverzovali jsme mezi tzv. Vekou zadni a Malou zadní stěnou. (To the top, Auguille du Midi, we took a cable-car from Chamonix. Na vrchol, Poledni horu, jsme jeli lanovkou z Chamonix.)
