Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2006


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

[X] Bird

Attempted the Table du Roc spur from the Albert Premier hut. Could not find the start of the route and there was too much stone fall at every possible route up to the crest of the spur. Since we had a enough time left we decided to do the normal route on the south summit. North summit normal route seemed a bit more interessting.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2000


Set out on a beautiful sunny morning. By the time we got to the top the weather had closed in, visibility nil, and it started to snow, so no view from the summit. Still enjoyed it though.

tphubbardClimbed ths twice  Sucess!


Once in '99 via the Table du Roc (poor weather, went on wrong ridge but got to top in the end) with two nights in the hut and then again in August 2003 with Neil and Simon from Le Tour and back in a day during a short window in the atrocious weather. A good training day is to climb this in a day from the valley and run back down - a bit of everything- scramble, glacer travel, moraine bashing!

Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2006


Very nice route. Found the trek from the lift a little long and not too interesting..especially on the way down! Reached summit in well under 3 hours at a very comfortable pace.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2006


My brother Gabi and I, as preparation of our ascend to Mont Blanc, climbed succesfully this nice Aiguille. At that moment of time it was our highest peak climbed ever. Nice route from Albert I hut and summit covered with fog. Our colleagues Luis and Fran joined us for the photo and celebration.

We came early in the morning from the Trient hut and the sunrise was fantastic! Nice mountain to climb, especially the climbing on the rocks to the summit.
