The last abseil off the Chèré...

The last abseil off the Chèré Couloir was from an Abalakov thread on the ice field. July 2005.
The route itself follows the obvious ice goulotte on the upper right.
Many parties abseil the route again, using the in situ anchors, instead of continuing to the summit of Mont Blanc du Tacul. This is especially advisable in warm conditions when there is a danger of loose rock on the upper sections. The whole route is in fact threatened by rock-fall in poor conditions.
