Cimbed the integral route over a few days. Dodged a lot of rocks, witnessed an accident and a helicopter rescue from 15meters away, summitted at 9pm and descended via the Gouter route to Les Houches.
After getting up midnight at Bivouac Eccles, we turned back near Col d'Eccles due to the poor snow conditions, as well as the warsening weather forecast towards the afternoon. Reportedly the party that overtook us near the col was heli-rescued the following day from Freney.

Turned back just before Col Eccles ~4000m due to poor unfrozen snow conditions causing slow progress, despite an 01:30 start. =o(
