A distraction from a failed Mt Blanc attempt  Sucess!

Having turned back just before the Nid d'aigle, due to excessive snow blocking the tunnel, we headed here instead for a short, but enjoyable climb.

Like a Sport Climb  Sucess!

Really flowed through the arete having the whole route to ourselves thanks to starting as the cosmiques hut in the morning, felt like a sport climb rather than an alpine climb.

Beautiful!!!  Sucess!

I climb this route 2 times, first time guided and next time I did it solo.
Everyone attempting this route must be patient, there is a lot of people climbing everyday.

Crowded  Sucess!

Great route, but it was super crowded. We had to wait quite a few times.

First Alpine Route  Sucess!

Great first Alpine lead, really enjoyed it. Was back last summer and did it for my last climb of the trip, with a dodgy knee had me a bit nervous on the crux (its always so bloody crowded!) but still loved it!

Amazin route  Sucess!

Quite an amount of snow in the route. At the crux only one in situ friend.

Beautiful  Sucess!

Climbed it twice, once on July 14th 2013 and once on Jun 22nd 2013. The first time we went for enjoyment and didn't make terribly good time. The second time, my friend and I went for speed and we managed it in 2.5 hrs (having to wait a bit for parties on the last two pitches). Great climb! Excellent views!

Training climb  Sucess!

My introduction to alpine mixed climbing, with Mike Chen and lead by a Chamonix high mountain guide. Fun route with lots of exciting exposure, though somewhat uncomfortable to climb 5th class rock with crampons.

Fast Food Alpinism  Sucess!

Alpine 'plaisir' climbing with a very low commitment factor. Still, a pleasent climb with great views and some fine climbing passages. Fast Food Alpinism at it's best!

Climbed after Point Lachenal traverse  Sucess!

3rd time and counting....still as enjoyable as the first time though

Superb route  Sucess!

Climbed in perfect conditions and greatly enjoyed it. Didn't need to use crampons except for the approach.
