Started just before 4, as we were kitting up at the edge of the glacier it started raining, with tunder & lightning getting progressively closer. When it got to <0.5s between the flash and the bang, we (along with other groups) decided to bail, but the storm receded as we were heading back to the hut. Turned back round and had a clear run to the summit.

Top quality 'snow plod' with a good rock section thrown in. Probably not AD, but of the same calibre.

My second Alpine peak. Had the summit to ourselves after an efficient ascent despite stopping to take photos of the huge anvil cloud over Italy, before wandering back down the ordinary route.

From the middle station, Excellent conditions, congested on the rock step
wowbagger - 2nd - Jul/09

Not an AD route but an excellent PD under normal conditions. Did it with Pete in warm conditions with soft snow and melt ...the final rock pitch wonderful despite things dropping off around us...descended the normal route after meeting friends on the summit with perfect timing.

Left the Britannia hut at 5.30ish, reached the summit at about 10. Basically just a snow plod, though the short rock section at the top is fun but easy enough.
markfairbank - AltLd O/S - 09/Sep/08 with Mike Shields, Mark Ireland

Start ~ 5:20 am. Great conditions. Snow climb was not too bad. 30m rock pitch was bolted. Not bad, even in crampons. Great up top. Descended normal route. Great day.

The softest AD known to man, would be F+ around chamonix. However, it is a nice snow climb with 50m of scottish 2 at the top and the view is superb.
