Route with a Little bit of Everything Date Climbed: Jul 4, 1991
Really liked this route. We skied in, with great snow conditions, to Pollux's base. Snow was nice and firm going up the snow gully. Rock was clean and fairly solid going up. Enough variation on this short climb to keep it interesting.
We started lower than expected from a cabane in Italy ( forgot the name). Climb was ok, despite the short traffic jam at the chains (which were quite handy). Snow ridge to the top was nice, just as the view. Decided via the steep snow flank (east if i'm correct)
