Nice and easy climb. 50 people in front when we left the hut, only 4 remaining when we reached the summit :) No, its not a race, but sometimes it is fun to be quick.
Climbed it during the summer of 2005, my third 4000-er..
Perfect day but too many people on the summit.
As part of a climbing course I scaled my first 4000 m peak. It's a nice tour, easy and very crowded.
We went to the glacier as it was posible because we started to be bored of rocky routes. Previous day we climbed Tresenta and it was enough of stones. :-)
Glacier was icy in the morning so we could improve our crampoon technique. :-)))
Very bad weather conditions for this 4000
The day after the climb from "refuge Chabot" with Reza, I was leading another ascent of Grand-Paradis, this time from Refugio Vittorio Emanuele II and with Karima, a French / Algerian girl.
We summited in a perfect weather. Karima had some alpine climbing background but this was her first 4000m summit.
