My "Swan Song" in mountaineering. Started earnestly in 1998 (Mt Blanc) and now slowed down due to age (71) and a cerebrovascular accident in 2016.
Climbed this splendid rocky ridge in the company of my son Alexander and local guide Nils. We descended to Cabane de Moiry via the glacier. Gorgeous sunny weather!!! Highly recommended for rock climbing practice on fairly easy terrain!
Started off from the Cabane de Moiry.
Climbed this for the second time, for acclimating - because of bad weather took the normal route, snow, wind and fog at the summit.
We stayed at the "Campsite" (parking) at the end of the road (P. 2349m) and started from there. Tracks to the Col du Pigne. Then continued alone and climbed the north ridge up and down.
