Nice one

Looks like thereĀ“s not a big cornice on the summit ridge this season.

Re: Nice one

Thanks! The cornice is still pretty bad above the Ferrari route (where the accident occurred a couple of years ago I think). This season people are climbing the French Direct to the summit almost exclusively.
