There are several errors in this report which should be corrected:
1) Pascal Ducroz was not killed in a climbing accident - he took his own life.
2) Jeff Mercier dry-tooled the Dru Couloir Direct in winter 2007.
3)Clouet and Dumarest's linked ascents in the Ecrins may have gone unreported on UKClimbing, but they were widely covered by the French national and regional press and radio.
I had head that Pascal took his own life but since I was not 100% sure and did not want to probe into it I thought it best to leave it as that.
Fantastic article Jon!
