Great day out on the Aiguille du Midi, not technically hard but tremendous situations, great variations in the route, quite a bit of soft snow and a long ascent. Topped out before the last 'frique down and before the evening thunderstorms arrived ... so all told a great day out and a perfect weekend trip to Chamonix.

Lead first 950m with Mark, then final 50m lead by Christophe Profit while he was rescuing us at 2 in the morning. A memorable day out.

A bit of an epic. We were off route, and with poor weather (snow and wind) arriving had to bivouac. We just picked our way up what seemed the easiest line in very poor visibility on day two, but one of my crampons broke and we had to cut steps. I then fell on a traverse and the other crampon was ripped from my boot. Very slow going as a result and we had to bivouac on the rocks about 100m below the summit and the cable car station. The weather was bad enough to stop any cable cars running on the second day. We were lowered a rope from the cable car station and prussiked up it finish. The adventures of one's youth!
