We're hoping to head up and over tomorrow so will report back.
Everything off the Midi is in great condition, lots of teams on Pointe Lachenal, Cosmiques Arete and Chere. Some teams on Left Edge and Contamine Mazeaud. Also, people going as far as the Rognon on the Midi-Plan traverse but no further as too much snow

There is plenty to climb though, just need to be a bit flexible with objectives
