Traverse  Sucess!

First rope team on the traverse. Icy in the initial slopes but super dry on the rest due to extreme summer this year.

Crowded but excellent.   Sucess!

Did as warmup to Arete Cosmiques. Very crowded our day, ended up waiting for a total of over an hour at various cruxes. Ended up bypassing one on the (third?) sub-peak because it was a traffic jam and we saw rocks getting kicked down. There was an alternate traverse below and to the right.

Traverse  Sucess!

It was an easy route, so we made our own variation. We skipped the first summit and went straight up the mixed terrain to the second summit.

North face  Sucess!

We climbed the Point Lachenal and also the 2nd summit after weeks of bad weather in the Alps but the conditions to climb both summits were good. Only at the edge of the glacier and the point Lachenal the swowbridge were quite tin and i fell until my shoulders in crevasse.

I Climbed with the Guide Michel Bordet a direct route to the base of the highest summit and made a diagonal on mixed terrain to arrive on the very top wich was a narrow cornice at this spring.

Maybe AD grade.
