Second time trying to get up the Couzy - and second retreat! Verglas on the slabby bit just past the crux, and quite wet in general. But no more excuses! Next time for sure!

NNE Route  Sucess!

Did the NNE after retreating from verglas on a slabby bit just past the crux of the Couzy.
Quite a fulfilling route, the descent was also quite a lot of fun.

Couzy route  Sucess!

Climbed the Couzy with Koen while I was traversing the alps on foot (check -> via alpina)
Brilliant route and a pure line in the cold north face

wouldn't mind doing it again

Ménégaux Route

Unfortunately we backed off on the 3rd pitch. Didn't fancy aiding the pitch of VI on the three rusty pegs.

This was our warm up route at the start of the trip and very enjoyable it was too. Just made the last cable car down!

NNE Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with Philippe Gerschel and Tracy Lenard during a period of very hot and unstable weather in Chamonix. The crux pitch was wet, which made it a bit annoying, but otherwise, very good climbing. We reached the summit just as clouds started rolling in. By the time we descended, an impressive thunderstorm had arrived and we took shelter under some overhanging rocks, along with another party. When the storm passed, we continued down to Plan de l'Aiguille but had missed the last cable car and had to walk back to Chamonix.

Couzy route  Sucess!

Nice line, pitons on the crucial places. Freeclimbed 6a, with the pitons maximum V+. 200-250m of classic rock climbing atmosphere.

Couzy  Sucess!

Got the 6.30 cable car to the plan, took about 2 hrs to get to the base of the climb. The rock was bloody cold first thing, and wet in places. This route is very sustained and well worth doing.

NNE Ridge  Sucess!

That was the year they crashed the midi car into the station, so had to approach from montoveurs. very good route, loved the big jamming crack
