The upper part of the Cassin...
The upper part of the Cassin route (1938) at the Walker spur, north face of Grandes Jorasses:


Key places:


(a)Triangular snowfield


(b) Red chimney (it's not really a chimney, but several parallel cracks / shallow dihedrals, almost always ice-filled)


(c) "Reverse" ledge (it's really just inclined)


(d) Red Tower (also called Tour Rouge / Tour Rousse in several guidebooks)
