We were going to do the couloir, but had a chat with a guide in the cable car on the way up who said morning sun could mean tricky ascent so we did this one instead (again). Alpine Club guide gives this an F+. Abbed of side of the ridge to avoid the hordes on the way down. Back on the Montets station at midday. Delightful morning out. Dramatic views of the Dru from the summit ridge. Would defintely recommend.

jakelodge - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/10
Something of an epic - our hardest Alpine route to date. Poor snow conditions and climbed too late in the day, although the rock was excellent. 30m rope wasn't nearly enough to abseil down from the col back to the glacier, so untied and down soloed :( then ran for the last cable car, which we would have missed if they hadn't held it for us...

Climbed as acclimatisation route when leading alpine novice, as usual never fails to dissapoint, brilliant mornings climb, busy as usual particularly with british guided parties, still enjoy this route more than the slightly harder north face farther to the left. More snow on it than in the past but have climbed it later in the season (August) in the past. Weather superb on the day.
