Route Climbed: Calotte (from L'Alpe Du Villar d'Arene Hut) - Agneau Blanc Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2007
Jean Philippe, Philippe and I got up at 2am for early breakfast (dinner?), leaving the Hut (2080m) at 2.45am. Weather conditions good. After quite a long climb (1600m of cumulated ascent) we reached summit of Agneau Blanc (3630m) at 9.15am. We celebrated with a fabulous and sweet melon admiring the beautiful views. The final ridges and corridors (calotte) quite amazing and alpine !. In one of the corridors we needed to avoid a big rock directly coming to us... ufff !. After some photos we descent to Glacier Blanc Hut (2542m) with one delicate abseil and some bottom sky ... All in all a great alpine route.
