Getting ThereTake approach from hut as per Modern Times, etc. cross the wide scree gully below the couloir forming the right boundry of Modern Times. TAKE GREAT CARE. It should be obvious, but this gully is the where every bit of loose rock from the face is funnelled. There have been fatalities here. Helmet up before crossing, and cross low. Steiger starts on the bottom of the slabs on the other side
