Learned to ice climb over the bulge 100m from the top, made a classic spooky ski descent in the shade. Wooo! Glad to finally air over the bergshrund back into the land of the flats. But the turns at the top, oh my!
Started climbing too late in the morning. Lower section was straight forward but the remainder was problematic due to soft unstable snow. Total white out upon topping out and unable to find normal descent route off Mont Blanc du Tacal. Ended up biviing at 4100m until weather cleared the following morning.
