Crochues to Belvedere. Easy 5th. Short day. Chimneys were fun. No views due to weather.

Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2011


South-East Face to the summit, including a very enjoyable dihedral slab and the final 6A pitch (I had to be hoisted up by our guide Eric). The traverse & descent were very pleasant scrambles.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2010


Attempted to climb the S-summit via the South Arete - 5c max. Due to a number of unforeseen delays we went much more slowly than expected and found ourselves 3/4th the way up the mountain at 7:30 PM. We decided to take the safest option and rappel down rather than continue on and attempt to return via the Traversee des Crochues. It turned out this was sketchier than anticipated due to rockfall and the rope getting stuck and it took us much of the night to finish our rappel.

mountaindogRoute Climbed: Traversed from Unpublished Route just left of the Tour de Crochures Date Climbed: August 2005  Sucess!


Traversed the summit of this peak after taking 6 pitches (5b/c) up a spur to the left of the Tour de Crochures - no one else on the route until we ran into those coming from the col. About 400m of nice climbing on good rock.

Climbed the East Face of Petite Crochue, which has some very nice passages, but which has also some harder moves on the end. Continued with the traverse to the Col des Dards and descent to the Lac Blanc.

Bit of a exploratory climb went up the coloir to the col spent a bit of time getting a feel for the area. Didn't go far as i was still recovering from a dislocated shoulder.

Traverse (PD, 3c/4) -- June 30, 2001 -- Climbed this route with Francis Kelsey on my first trip to the Alps. It seemed really scary at the time, with lots of exposure and tricky downclimbing in boots.

East Face (AD, 4c) -- July 21, 2004 -- Climbed with Philippe Gerschel as our first climb together in Chamonix after two days of rainy weather. It was Philippe's first route in the Alps, which was fitting, since the Traverse was my first route back in 2001. Also with us on this climb was Pete Boddy of the UK, who I met up with before Philippe arrived. It was fun to repeat part of the Traverse as well and laugh at how scared I was 3 years before.

Escande-de Galbert (D+, 5a) -- June 30, 2013 -- Lots of snow on the approach and the route was quite wet, which made for slow going. The route finding is a bit difficult on the lower pitches. The descent gully still had some snow which made it necessary to downclimb with crampons. We were 30 min late for the cable car at Flegere, so we spent the night at the refuge with Tartiflette for dinner.
