/ Midi Bridge Rappel Alternatives & Routes
I was wondering if anybody knew if it was possible to abseil down the line of the 'shit route' that tops out on the north side of the Cosmiques viewing platform? Any comments on the route would also be appreciated.
Secondly, I know it is possible to descend the Cosmiques as seen here: http://www.tvmountain.com/video/alpinisme/9730-aiguille-du-midi-goulotte-truc-et-jottnar-chamonix-mo...
Does anybody know if the Profit Perroux or the Vent du Dragon are equipped for abseil from the ridge, and if so whereabouts to find them? I know the Burnier Vogler is equipped but to get to the top of this would require climbing back up the abseils on the Cosmiques Ridge?
I would ab off the viewing platform, down the route that colin haley climbed in that video a while back. Not sure whether its equipped though. Two abs would you get you to the gully I reckon. Or just wait until you can get of the bridge, there are plenty of other routes to go at.
hope that helps, Jon Bracey
