Beautiful day, walked from Pont Helbronner and whizzed up the facile East Face in two hours with an hour retreat. Snow and ice was melting as we returned and some of the scree was in dodgy condition.

More like PD for us, as snow had gone so tricky getting off the rubbly ice onto the rocks. Very nice, descent great followed cairns. Views stupendous.
