RappareeFantastic Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2013


Bivvied about the Refuge D'Albert, it was a horrible trek up with the stuff. Up early to get out and on it, only one group beat us to it. Not sure what route we went up but I remember it being quite rocky and cold in the shadow of the mountain. Great feeling looking out over the Alps and knowing you were in Switzerland!

Can't recommend it enough for a 2 day trip to acclimatize!

markhallamA good acclimatisation climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2012


Climbed with rgg, from the Albert Premier Hut on French side. Some recent new snow made the summit rocks slightly harder, but the supposedly infamous bergschrund was straight forward (at least this year!). An otherwise enjoyable day out with new climbing partner marred by a careless moment on my part descending summit rocks - hand-hold came out resulting in a (fortunately) short fall and the biggest & most spectacular bruise I have ever had - right on my butt (R cheek to be precise)... note to self "check before you hang from it..."

IvanBraunDKScary day - soft loose rocks
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2010


No summit
Soft loose rocks dropped around us and we decided to turn around only some 100 m from the summit while we could

barrysVersant Est du Nord  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2010


Left before the crowds but the peak was buried in thick cloud and we had a few route finding problems in the dark and cloud. Ploughed straight up the middle of glacier du tour. Planned on doing the traverse, thick cloud and darkness meant we ended up following tracks up the north peak. Still very short and relatively easy. Had the route and summit to ourselves just before the cloud started to break up. Back on the Trient basin as the crowds arrived.
