What a route!

And what a great write up and photos - thanks for sharing it.
In 1986 I spent 2 nights camped on the frontier ridge close to the old Trident Hut waiting for a weather opportunity to do this climb, but it wasn't to be. It would be well beyond me now.
I was in the vicinity a few weeks before you though - descending from a bivvy on Mont Blanc summit with rgg, down the '3 Monts'... and I recognise that horrible crevasse! I was so tired after 2 long days plus nights without sleep that I managed to jump into it instead of across it... and then like you I didn't enjoy the final grind back up to the Midi!
Did you get to do the Rocheforte Traverse? I shall look forward to the TR if you did.
Best wishes, Mark

Re: What a route!

Thanks Mark, that is cool that you were up that way too...I can't imagine what that crevasses crossing must have been like by September?!? I haven't done the Rocheforte Traverse yet, but I would like to, and if all the cards are right, to continue on to the Grande Jorasses summit after a bivy. Happily there is plenty of time...one of these years! Hopefully see you out there sometime for a starry, pre-dawn start!
