Climbed the Couturier couloir on the Aiguille Verte yesterday to ski the Whymper Couloir.
Find my trip report and photo's here.

Wow.

The Whymper Couloir has thinned out over the years. Gaston Re'buffat's book has a (summer) picture of it with a carpet of deep snow right the way down. Looks a bit sketchy now, especially the last bit just above the schrund.

Rather you than me, Dave. Respect :-)

It's only a couloir when it's got snow in it, Tim. Have a look at it during a typical September: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=236224
