Started 12.35pm from first train. Reached a pitch or two beneath the Grey Tower at 3550m by 5.35pm. Bailed due to stonefall. Shame, as we were doing well.

Bivi at the bottom of the route and on the way down. Very dry and some stone fall. Great experience.

Not sure if I like this alpine climbing much, but a great route nevertheless! Some memorable pitches - the Rebuffat, grey tower and above the red chimney especially. Mostly dry except one icy pitch near the top and a tricky pitch at the start to get around the shrund. Long varied descent into Italy, very glad to reach hut. Classic and memorable....

Excellent route but very long! Bivied on a sloping ledge by the red tower and climbed the final 200m the next morning. Quite icy on the top 400metres.

Motored up the initial two thirds, which was in dry conditions; the top third was v icy which slowed us down. Cold bivvy above grey towers
