Stephane Debruyne & Didier Manu 16/Dec/2001

ndraper1 11/Oct Lead

first half Debruyne-Manu 2nd half Gabbarou 79. 8-12inches new snow. Challenging but exciting mixed conditions, sometimes thin. No topo just followed the best ice and this was the result. Pure fun. Timings: 4 1/2 hrs hut to schrund(high route taken due to state of glacier)- 6hrs to summit- 4hrs to descend summit to glacier epaule(awful state, ice too poor for abolokovs, occasionally useful rap stations in rhs rock, crossing snow bridges thinking light thoughts)- 2 1/2 hrs return to hut- 2hrs 15 to le tour. Full body 19-20hr test!
