Route Description

Clot de la Hount

On the summit of Grand Vignemale (3298m) we'll descent the last section of the ascent but we'll don't descent across the ramp. We'll follow the ridge climbing (I+) always on left side of the edge to a great gendarme (aiguille). We'll border the aiguille on letf side (II-), over the glacier to a gap with the summit. We'll search the chimney (II+ and II) on left side of the summit of Clot de la Hount to get the shoulder and finally the summit. The descent is across the easiest South ridge to colo of Cerbillona to return to the glacier.

Essential Gear

Crampons and ice-axe to the glacier of Ossoue.
