Aig Blanche de Peuterey from the Col Moore

For August, the snow looks remarkably, er, snowy. August nowadays, the couloir of the Col de Peuterey doesn't look like that. The serac of the N Face looks very similar to the present - maybe now the slope to the right of the serac is wider...?

Hi Jon! That was the summer where mid July looked like winter after 2 weeks of snow - this was the beginning of august so the mountains were only just beginning to get back in condition.
The top parts of the blanche look very similar to today (http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=88557)
- the big difference, as you say, is the col which has much less snow cover (no personal experince of course - this IS UKC, after all!
