Left Chamonix at 2:00am. Got to the base of the route by 6:30. Climbed pretty slowly and got fully destroyed. Barely managed to drag ourselves into the Midi Station to catch the last lift down. Terrible snow conditions in the top third. Great effort by Ben for dragging me up the last third when my body completely failed and we werent moving faster than 3 steps a minute..

Poor acclimatisation route but epic. Started from the valley at 2am, base of route by 6:30, 2/3 of the route by midday where the snow became waist deep powder. Both of us suffering from HAS, it took 5 hours of mental and physical exhaustion with a lot of encouragement and the sight of the midi coming out of the clouds for me to drag mikey up the last 400m to make last lift with seconds to spare. Sketchy climbing above the crevasse as we traversed under the midi rock pinnacle (off route) . Total relief to be off those snow slopes. First time in my life I've ever been broken.
