Midi-Plan Traverse*** AD
[Summit Aiguille du Plan after Midi-Plan Traverse, 3 kb]Follow the snow ridge NE from the Midi station to the Col du Plan. Turn rock sections by snow couloirs on the Chamonix face to the Rognon du Plan. From here follow the rock arete a short way before abseiling on the Envers side to the Col sup du Plan. On the return journey there is a short pitch of IV to reascend the Rognon du Plan.

Note, most French books rate this AD for the return journey to the midi, PD if you descend the Envers du Plan glacier.

Still can't seem to finish this route. Went only as far as the Col sup. du Plan as it was white-out and snowing and so not much fun continuing. Good snow conditions up to the South side of Rognon du Plan where it became softer. Descended the Glacier d'Envers du Plan to the Requin Hut. Glacier was in poor condition in places but just passable.

Bad weather so we abandoned ship at the col. Also far too late in the year, conditions on the glacier were horrible, took all day to get to the refuge hut (including falling into a big hole).

Last of trip. From the first lift. Harder rock step and longer than anticipated. Description says short. Not so sure. Great route now a firm favourite for me. Return harder than outward due to rock step and steep snow ridge on softening snow.

Great route on the ridge: not hard, but good fun and great views all along. Started on the ridge at 9.30 due to late telepheriques at this time of year. The plan was to turn around after about 3 hours since last cable car down from the Midi was at 4.30. We foolishly took the guidebook at its word that the descent to Montenvers would take 3 hours: the summit of the Plan was calling too intensely, and featured some wonderful cramponing rock steps. The descent was a disaster, though: after negotiating the bergschrund we spent many hours weaving through chaotic serac bands and crevasse fields down the Envers glacier. Reached the moraine/buttress below in the dark and so missed the unlit Requin hut -- we bivvied below the hut at midnight and made the long scree/moraine descent to Monetenvers the next morning -- in a thunderstorm for extra fun. Glacier descent highly discouraged!

Lovely route, but this late in the season we had to choose whether or not to bail at the abseil in order to get the lift down. Opted to complete the route, leading to a rather epic descent of the glacier & slabs and a night in the open before a storm came in! Live and learn...

First semi-epic. The route was too snowy and we were too slow, ended up deciding to walk down the glacier because the route would be a swim. Navigating a snowy glacier in a white out turned out to be quite hard. Ended up bivvying on the Mer de Glasse because it got dark and we couldn't find the stairs to get off.

The rest was a bit icy but otherwise in decent conditions. We decided not to continue with the whole Aiguilles traverse after seeing the already late hour.

Got the second bin up 6.40pm. Amazing climbing, gob smacking situations on airy snow arêtes. Nothing to technical but a very long day. Did the route midi to plan in guide book time 4hrs. The decent took far to long 5 1/2 hrs to montivers. We when very slowly down a knarly looking but easy envers glacier. After a we rest at the requin hut we also managed to get lost for about 2hrs in the mer de glace/tucal/luacho glacier join. This was very crevassed and required loads of jumping and back tracking. Managed to the get the train tho :)

We went Plan - Midi so we didn't have to descend the Envers de Plan glacier when the snow bridges were soft. Nearly reached the ridge, on a perfect smooth snow slope when boom, I fell down a crevasse. An epic ensued, but we both limped into Midi station with relief.
