Topic - Snow conditions Chamonix, Aiguille Rouges?

JohnnyW - on 05 Jul 2013
We are approaching this year's trip, and the anticipation is building! ;)

How much snow is lying around the top of the Index upwards, towards the Aiguilles Gliere and Belvedere? I am expecting to need crapons and axes, but hoping not?

We have some relatively inexperienced folks with us who may just want to do lower level walks, so what is the snow line currently for the Balcon Nord? Can you do the traverse from the Midi Plan along to Montenvers as a 'walk' for example?

I take it the Vallee Blanche has a lot of snow over the crevasses?

Any relevant comments/advice/observations welcome.
