Topic - Freney Pillar

a lakeland climber on 06 Dec 2012
There's an interesting article in The Alpine Journal 2012 about the true story of the first ascent of the Central Pillar of Freney and the acceptance in France that the Bonington/Whillans party made the first ascent without help from the Desmaison/Piussi team.

Worth reading if you come across it.

There's also a piece that originally appeared in Rock and Ice about the Compressor Route on Cerro Torre.
