Turned back just short of the summit due to weather, glassier conditions and a lot of rock fall. All the snow bridges had melted and the glassier route out was heavily peppered with rock fall close to the walls - I am not bitter honest!!!!!!!!!
A hard decision but I believe the right decision.
We wanted to traverse the mountain, but the conditions on the North Ridge were considered too dangerous. See the route details from the main page for a description of the climb.
Easy and beautiful route. We reached the top in 4 hours from Argentiere Hut. Finding the way down was a nightmare, specially in a foggy day. Nevertheless, it worthed the effort. A very recomended route.
