Do I take a risk and go fingerless? Or will I regret it on some of the descents? We're talking mid-August. I'm planning heights such as the Tourmalet and Aubisque cols. I'm asking because I once descended fingerless from Lautaret to La Grave in France in early July and it took 45 mins to get feeling back in my gelated digits after a cold descent. But that was the only time I needed fingered gloves on the whole of a trip that included umpteen 1,000m+ cols. Est-ce que je prends le risque?
