RappareeOne of my first Alpine routes  Sucess!

Rapparee

Made the mistake of getting up late, missed the first car up, place was crowded with guides dragging people up. Myself and my partner were too polite and shy to make much headway, had fun on the Bergschrund though, nice little bit of ice!

We hung around most of the day, making progress when we could. Abseiled off some interesting stuff to get down to the station fast, lesson learned, get up early!

Easy day to get back into moving together on alpine terrain. Crowded route when descending meeting lots of people on the way up, despite getting first telepherique of the day(7-30 am) North West ridge Route, PD- Bergschrund no problem at crossing point this early in season a little wider at left side of the NNW face a route i did a few years ago. This Route never dissapoints we did it in perfect weather and perfect snow conditions a nice mixed easy route with wonderful views. Back in the valley for dinner. Lots of guided parties on it.

KRZYSIntro - NW face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2010

Pretty introdution to Mont Blanc Massif holiday. Good aclimatisation ascent. Bad weather - moments of snowing, lot of clouds. This face is a nice alternative to often crowed ridge - you avoid waiting for teams toiling over ridge being. There was a short moment of fine ice field (late summer - however easy to walk around if you want). Good protection in upper part. We did 3 rappels in the descent.

On the first day climbing in Chamonix, on the way to the Refuge d' Argentiere, we spent a couple of hours on this delightful little summit. The snow was quite soft, ideal for training before more challenging terrain. Highly recommended!

SimnelNormal route  Sucess!

Simnel

Very large bergschrund and lots of ice...2003 was a bad year in the alps due to the heat wave so what was ment to be an 'easy' day out was not! As mountaineering should be! Great climb and wonderful abseil descents to race back to catch the very last cable car down for the season. We made it just in time.

Followed the NW ridge to the summit in perfect weather. It was a beautiful route and we were almost the only people there despite the time of year.

Florence and I attempted this climb as an end to our holidays in Chamonix. The icy/delicate conditions of the approach and late departure make as decide to go back just 1 pitch from the summit. Descent was great and we could take the train down. Excellent experience anyhow. Florence passed successfully her alpine initiation phase. Alpinism implies as well to know when is needed to drop the ascent. We will try again for sure.

Last day of 3 days tuition with a guide, in thick cloud with a strong wind. I was absolutely terrified. We made it over the rimaye, up the face and onto the summit ridge but couldn't see more than a few meters, we were probably only metres from the summit but I didn't even care, I just wanted to get back down!! Which we did by the normal route. My girlfriend wanted to continue to the summit which shames me I guess!!

AndrewSmythWhite-out  Sucess!

AndrewSmyth

Climbed it 3 days after a disasterous day in the Alps in a whiteout. Was still recovering from a previous ordeal so was a bit slow. Took the left hand route which is rated PD+ but conditions were pretty poor and snow was very unstable.
