Done in one LONG day from the car park in the cirque de fer a cheval. Would have been more enjoyable if we'd stayed at the refuge. Oh the blisters. Great views onto Ruan and Dents Du Midi.
ascent by ski hiking
due to its altitude and orientation on north, this ascent can normally be done by skis up to late june
My second ascent of the Dents Blanches over the Pas de la Bide. The high combs are completely snow free this year. The crossing over from the Occidental summits to the Dent du Signal over the precipices on the two sides is very impressive !
