VinnyRoute Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!


A great morning out with Bruce!

We tramped up the 1800m and were 10 mins early of his expected time of 4 hours.

Great ski route as it starts high from Arolla already, and can be skiied late in season.

Eating Ice cream with the filthy rich on Lac Leman by 14:00. Cheapest Movenpick ice cream in CH, Bruce insists.

Part of the haute route from Chamonix to Zermatt, when the weather is good enough you get to bag some pretty big summits allong the way.

Climbed it by ski. Went up from Cabane des Dix, descended on the other side to Cabane the Vignettes. Got terrible sunburn in my face. Lack of experience!!!

We were doing the Chamonix-Zermatt and climbed Pigne d'Arolla in a very nice day. Matterhorn looked splendid.

8 years later i climbed him again but this time via the nord face.

A splendid face for starters in ice faces.

nord face : AD+ or D depending the snow conditions
