Route Climbed: South East Ridge Date Climbed: JULY 2004

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.

Route Climbed: South East Flank Date Climbed: Wed 29 Jul 2003  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: North Face Traverse Date Climbed: Aug. 1997  Sucess!

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.
