800m. Start changed by a rockfall in 1995. Check the state of the top seracs before starting the climb. Can be climbed in good serac conditions via the Gussfeldt Coulouir to start. Gussfeldt Couloir and its approach are threatened by seracs. Weather needs to be very cold and dont hang around at the start.

Started via Gussfeldt Coulior which I think is the norm now. Got up the route in 4 hours from hut to summit.

Left Fourche 11.30am - got a bit last in the chaos of serac fall at the foot of the Gussfeld. Turned the upper seracs all the way to the right - summit at 10.30 - Midi station at 3pm in a thunderstorm

Magnificent route. Enjoyed it even more than the Forbes Arete on the Chardonnet.
