Combined it with a climb towards the Petit Flambeau. What a lovely pair these two.
Weather not very clear but still a worth while morning out
Nice views of Mont Blanc massif. Good spot to watch the climbers on the Grand Capucin.
Lovely place, wonderful weather, a bunch of happy folks... What could you expect more ?
Great summit for lounging and general enjoyment of views and mountains. Lazy day ski run down the north face got exciting halfway down when snow went from buttery corn to bulletproof. Great terrain below for switch skiing too! :p
Went up the west side and down the rocky south side, short but lots of fun with super views from the summit.
Finally we were lucky with the weather after 3 days with rain, snowfall and thunderstorms...
Unfortunately there was avalanche danger on most of the higher peaks like Mont Blanc du Tacul and others, which prevented us from climbing one of those peaks as it was planned originally.
So we did a nice traverse of Aiguille de Toula starting from Punta Helbronner instead, which turned out to be a very nice alternative.
Ascent: via standard-route
Descent: via the steep snowflank on the NW-face
On the summit we enjoyed the warm weather and countless amazing views in all directions.
Short walk up and carefull on the way down in the rocks. Perfect beginner "summit".
Bella ascensione sul versante Ovest percorso poco difficile e divertente.
Beautiful ascension on the slope West a little difficult and amusing run.
