Topic - Midi Bridge Rappel Alternatives & Routes

MJF - on 01 May 2013
Last time I was in Chamonix a few weeks ago there was some work going and after trying to abseil off the bridge from the usual abseil point we were told it was currently prohibited and asked to pull our ropes up, which we complied with.

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?
