RappareeFantastic Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2013

Rapparee

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!

Fun little climb from the Trient hut. Crossing the schrund was the crux. ;-)

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

markhallam

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..."

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

Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2010

barrys

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.

This was part of the training for Mont Blanc. The starting point was the Albert Premier hut. Good scrambling but crowded on the last part of the route, (August 15, 1992).

Warm up for Mt. Blanc. Super weather. Apparently the "normal" route had shifted to another valley than described in our book, so we had a fun climb across a big bergscrund
