Climbed via the Frendo spur, after years of looking at it longingly. Definitely worth the wait.

paid the extra 3 euros to take the elevator up to the true summit. With a week of crappy weather preventing us from attemping any of the peaks we wanted to do (Dufour and Blanc), it was nice to still be able to get really high up. -6 C up at the top, overcast but great views.

of the Cosmique arete. I was not too well after an awful night in the Cosmique Hut ..nausea/vomiting/headache/mild AMS..in the mornining i started but backed off the Cosmique Arete very early leaving my climbing partners to complete the climb. I ascendedthe ridge back to the station.

I feel bad for signing this log since I took the tram to the top, but I have been to the top, and intend on returning there someday to summit Mont Blanc. So I'll update then.

Gabi, Sev, Nicolas and I came from Zermatt to Chamonix, we picked the telecabine to A. du Midi. We did the climb of the ridge in the early afternoon, with sun and excellent conditions; just in time to pick the last cabine to Torino Hut. A great climb.
