|Flachlandtiroler||Not so quiet... |
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2008
|Normal route is not that quite and lonesome as written here or in the (german) guidebooks... nearly two dozen climbers made it from the Chanrion hut to the summit that sunny day. |
Carefree trip which also can be done in one day from Mauvoisin or with a bivouac at the Tsofeiret lake.
Mauvoisin dam and tunnels are quite impressing; so does the nature in the meadows above the lake.

|Quiet (well, a little thunderstorm the night before) bivouac nearby lac de Tsofeiret. Then up the cwm leading to col de Lire Rose, and here straight up eastward on the rocks to join the right bank of upper Ruinette glacier. Short cut to 3710 m. notch then up on excellent greenish rocks to the top. Alone ! mid-august...alone ! With the exception of a "Mirage" fighter of the Swiss Air Force suddenly roaring over the summit no more than 100 feet. I came back along the Ruinette glacier, towards Brenay gl. right bank moraine, then Tsofeiret....and Mauvoisin dam car park.|
