Not for the clumsy!

The most gorgeous ridge I've ever seen! Freaky drops down both sides! Made it most of the way before turning back. It snowed a lot the day before and the snow was really soft and I chickened out to take it to the finish line! But, just fantastic!!!!!

Dramatic drops on both sides!  Sucess!

The first time that I stood on the ridge was in July 2009. Upon glimpsing the dramatic drops on either side, I realized that I was not yet ready for the crossing of the West ridge to the Aiguille de Rochefort. It took another year and more experience on very steep ice & snow (ie. Aiguille de Chardonnet and Tour Ronde) before I completed a successful venture (with a local guide Eric and my son Christoph) on this spectacular, famous ridge!
