Had meant to do the face route to top of Combin de Valsorey ..... but walked past it without seeing it. Eyes must have been shut!
Tim Sparrow - Aug/10 with Geoff Thomas

Turned back at top of serac band due to weather.

From Valsorey hut/Col du Meitin, serious rockfall from top of NW face at start of day. Actual climb up seemed reasonably safe/straight forward. Impressive seracs. Slog to summit on plateau. Descent was a rotten rock nightmare, possibly would be better in reverse.
