Central North Ridge and traverse towards Combin de Corbassière Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2012
Climbed the north ridge (Zentraler Nordpfeiler) from a bivy at the parking near the Brunet hut. A great ridge with a very fine ice slope at the end. On our descent we climbed the Combin de Corbassière and then continued glacier de Corbassière and back to the Brunet hut. A beautiful traverse with a very long descent!
