Broc and I enjoyed this summit. The surrounding view was breath taking.
Climbed the North Face - short and sweet - followed by Petit Fourche from Trient hut.
From Albert Premier Hut with Mr Mortimer - nice trip
From Albert Premier Hut, with Tariq Qureshi
The route was in perfect condition, very nice but too short, a bit soft going over the rimaye.
in September 2003 after the heat wave . From the Albert Premier, upto the Col du Tour and then along the ridge to the summit. Descended by the normal route crossing massive crevasses on dripping wet soft snow bridges....wonderful!
Wonderful day and ascent.
Went from Albert 1ere.
Unfortunatly the north face wasn't in condition...Climbed the normal route as a climbing instructor during a NKBV-course.
During a climbing course of the NKBV; the first north face i climbed :)
My first north face! Climbed from the Albert Premier hut. Bergschrund blown full of snow and easy to pass, face itself had crispy snow with brittle ice underneath. We climbed solo.
from Refuge Albert Premier with Moda
Climbed the North face. Horrible conditions, a layer of slush snow on glasshard ice.
my first alpine ice north face
Our first north face. Excllent (and a rather short) ciimb if only the weather permits. We (Boris & I) didn't get a single break throughout the entire week. However, those icy faces are exactly what i'm looking for in the mountains.
Perfect for the first North Face you climb on your own. Rather short (and that's an understatement), easy (if the rimaye isn't too wide ...) but very satisfying in combination with a traverse to Petite Fourche.
We ( Tim and I) climbed the north face after we finished the "couloir the table" of the Aiguilles du tour.
Nice climbing , had to make stand in the middle, at the rocks with ice screws due to icy conditions. Nice !
