Bailed out from Petit Fourche  Sucess!

Short morning trip before descent to Champex.
Strong winds made aus skip the Petit Fourche and return same way (West arete).
Lots of people, obviously most teams opted for this short itinerary due to the bad forecast.

Broc and I enjoyed this summit. The surrounding view was breath taking.

North Face Date Climbed: Aug 2010  Sucess!

The route was in perfect condition, very nice but too short, a bit soft going over the rimaye.

As a traverse

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!

North face  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: North Face. Date Climbed: July, 2004  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: july 2003  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: North face Date Climbed: 05 Jul 2002  Sucess!

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 !
