First Alpine route! Approach was a bit of a slog as we are unfit and not used to the loose terrain. Set off after one other party up the chimney but almost immediately a huge jam formed behind us. Fortunately there was plenty of space on the ridge for everyone to find their natural place in the order. Pitched the chimney and abbed the downclimb, otherwise moving together or short pitches using spike/block belays - didn't place any gear. Very little snow left on the way down, sought some out just to justify carrying the axes.

Nice ridge scramble with a couple of sections of Diff climbing. The odd peg and placed my trusty #6 nut in the initial chimney but other than that slings for runners/flicking rope over spikes. Descent down to the refuge and the lake was more time consuming than it should have been with soft and deep snow

Epic 1, couldn't see 10m in front of us and it was raining. Went up the wrong chimney (In crampons) that was lose as hell, found the right chimney, couldn't remember where to go,backed off, choose the wrong path down back to the campsite and managed not to get swepted up by raging water fall, but got to the campsite at about 2230, so not too bad.

did the crochure berrard traverse a number of times between jan and may for fitness. sometimes from brevant, once up the hard way, with the keyhole finish (quite nice actually). all together icy if you're first off the first lift, but worth it not to be stuck in traffic the whole way.
