Started the route at 7pm and climbed/rapped the whole thing through the night.Clear skies, 4 star route and good company...what more could you ask for?

Direct start, 5 out of the 8 picthes of difficulties. Ran out of time and abbed off before descending the Vallee Blanche in a rapidly fading light with one headtorch (my petzl broke...no surprise there) and the heaviest bags we`ve ever skied with. Direct start is really good but rest of the supercouloir a bit samey.

Did 3 pitches of the direct start, near to the traverse from the Gervasutti. Brilliant climbing, like Scottish VII/7, but very cold, abbed off as partner suffering from loss of feeling to feet and turned out he was developing frostbite.
