MtnMagicNice route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2013

Witnessed a ground fall on the first pitch by the group ahead of us. Luckily no one was hurt. Got stuck behind the same group for the first four pitches before passing and barely managed to catch the last cable car down. Of course we did start at 11:30. Overall a nice day in the mountains but start early to avoid slow moving parties.

Very fun outing, easy climbing with good moves, lots of pro, great views... Aiguilles Rouges at its best.

We climbing the entire ridge, in cold weather which helped to keep the crowds away - loved the exposure, loved the climbing, hated the descend. Highly recommended with beautiful views of Aig Verte so don't forget your camera!

Went up the ridge one couloir before the official route. This alternative start is properly bolted but more difficult and a bigger chance of your rope geting stuck which can cost a lot time. The big dihedral was both scarry and magnificant to lead. Of course followed by the splendid razor's edge. Did not climb the chapelle itself because we wanted to catch the last cable car ride which we missed. Definitly comming back one day to climb the chapelle itself.

July 2000. a classic with some great positions on the last few pitches. Very busy but worth it.

The first pitch starts slippery. After that nice climbing with of course the famous razors edge. Just below the chapelle the rock is loose and difficult to protect. We didn't feel like climbing the chapelle itself.

I forget the exact date. We (the ugly Americans) climbed up and over about ten people on this route. The descent was no cakewalk.
