MichaelJNormal variant  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2006


My first climb in the alps. Silvio and I climbed a harder variant of the normal route (not, as usual, on purpose). On the first pitch I went straight up the corner system instead of moving left and following all the fixed junk. The crux of this route was an overhung crack, which felt harder than 5.9+ in mountain boots. The route rejoins the normal on the third pitch, where we eshewed the fix gear and just enjoyed the face climbing. A fun route, especially if climbed free.

We had to skip the last 10 metres due to a nice fall. Our rope is still there - DON'T USE IT! Trip description: http://www.geocities.com/adszhu/Dent_2004_en_geo.htm

We climbed free all pitches, mostly at 5b/c, and two sections of what we believed is 6a. The fixed-rope is something that takes the beauty out of the route. May be one day it will no longer be there.

Climbed with Philippe Gerschel in the afternoon after first making a traverse of the Rochefort Ridge to the Aiguille de Rochefort. Really straightforward, especially with the fixed ropes. Only about 3 pitches of climbing without ropes. We descended by four rappels down the south face. Nice summit.

The overhanging south face was not as hard as I thought it would be. There were many pitons in place when I climbed it. Went on to do the Rochefort Ridges (Grandes Jorassas) after camping at the base of the face.

Beautiful peak but very crowded. Probably lost 2 hours on the day waiting on/passing other parties. Can be very windy so bring a windjacket regardless of how sunny it way seem. Be alert for the meandering nature of the rappels on the descent.

We could not reach the summit because of the crowds. Never attempt the route in summer time.

Summitted in june 2002 through the normal route. Have to admit that I did use the fixed ropes during the ascent, have to try that again some day with no "cheating". An interesting climb indeed!

I climbed it together with Jürgen from DAV Ulm. It was a great sunny day with best conditions - and therefore many, many people .....

I used it as training for alpine climbing with my big Koflach plastic boots and was surprised, how well I could climb most of the grade V passages without touching the fixed ropes. It was really a lot of fun to climb this nice peak.

Suberp and beautiful piece of granite. It would even be better (and more difficult) if the fixed ropes were removed. Breathtaking view on Mont Blanc and his satellites. Must do!!
