First taster of GJ. Long ski approach from the Leshaux hut(3hrs). Bergstrund was awkward to navigate for a moment esp for the short but perfect neve on uphill side to lunge at. Pete had lost an axe the day before so we pitched everything. Fairly run out first few pitches, belays required some digging around as not much rock pro/screws to begin with but got better as we climbed. Top quality neve and ice in the grandest of settings. Many rocks whizzing past us and down the center so sticking close to the rock band was best, but they added to the atmosphere! Climbed 6 pitches before calling it in as we wouldn't have got far with one axe on the steeper pitches and the heat was chucking all kinds down. Top day out will go back and bivi at the base.

Would be easier with two axes. http://wp.me/p2jrSj-hC
