Contamine Mazeaud rectifiée  Sucess!

SP'r WouterB and I climbed Contamine Mazeaud rectifiée in great conditions for this time of the year due to more than a month of bad weather on the mountains...
The route is super fun and varied. We ended up rapping down from the Cheré Couloir.

Classic.  Sucess!

Lots of variations at the top. Pick what looks like the most fun and go for it! Great route. Bring your skis and you will be racking up in about 30 minutes from the top of the station! Nice skin back up too!

nice  Sucess!

There are good belays and one extra piton in the crux. The crux is about 60° and 25m long. The rest of the route is about 50°.
We didn't go further to the summit. If you are on the shoulder (this is also the top op the chere couloir) you can abseil in the direction of the normal route, there are belaypoints. This is the fastest way down and also safer for the climbers in the Cherecouloir. In avalanche conditions this escape route is probably very unsafe and theres always danger of seracfall
