Topic - Glacier Camping

dutybooty - on 29 Apr 2013
Reading up on some alpine routes for the summer. Alot of people saying they camped on the Col Du Midi.

Few thoughts are springing to mind:
Is this allowed? Or mostly tolerated?
How do you know you're not setting up on a crevasse? Is it mostly just luck or some probing with a walking pole?
How would one go about acclimatising? Straight up to col du midi and pitch up, or go up to col du plan. Spend a night there and then travel higher?

Thanks

Ash
