Good acclimatisation climb  Sucess!

An enjoyable acclimatisation climb as a roped pair from Cabane du Trient. The rocks to the top are not hard but there were many climbers making it pretty crowded. The view to Aiguille Verte, Mont Blanc and Chamonix is spectacular, plus there are great view to the Dents du Midi, Grand Combin and the Pennine Alps beyond. - Jul 3, 2018 4:33 pm Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2000

First alpine climb ever, UCPA guide. 5 hours on eastern route, snow most of the way, some rock at the top. Great stuff!

On the Trek from Chamonix to Zermatt  Sucess!

This was an add on for Broc and I as we trekked from Chamonix to Zermat on the High Haute Route. Beautiful!

Fantastic Day  Sucess!

Bivvied about the Refuge D'Albert, it was a horrible trek up with the stuff. Up early to get out and on it, only one group beat us to it. Not sure what route we went up but I remember it being quite rocky and cold in the shadow of the mountain. Great feeling looking out over the Alps and knowing you were in Switzerland!

Can't recommend it enough for a 2 day trip to acclimatize!

Fun Scramble  Sucess!

Fun little climb from the Trient hut. Crossing the schrund was the crux. ;-)

Cold coulloir de la breche  Sucess!

Very cold climb up the beautiful ice of the coulloir de la breche from Albert premier.

A good acclimatisation climb  Sucess!

Climbed with rgg, from the Albert Premier Hut on French side. Some recent new snow made the summit rocks slightly harder, but the supposedly infamous bergschrund was straight forward (at least this year!). An otherwise enjoyable day out with new climbing partner marred by a careless moment on my part descending summit rocks - hand-hold came out resulting in a (fortunately) short fall and the biggest & most spectacular bruise I have ever had - right on my butt (R cheek to be precise)... note to self "check before you hang from it..."

Scary day - soft loose rocks

No summit
Soft loose rocks dropped around us and we decided to turn around only some 100 m from the summit while we could

Versant Est du Nord  Sucess!

Left before the crowds but the peak was buried in thick cloud and we had a few route finding problems in the dark and cloud. Ploughed straight up the middle of glacier du tour. Planned on doing the traverse, thick cloud and darkness meant we ended up following tracks up the north peak. Still very short and relatively easy. Had the route and summit to ourselves just before the cloud started to break up. Back on the Trient basin as the crowds arrived.
