Lots of powder on approach and on the climb slowed us down a lot, coupled with a bit of a casual start from the bivvy at the mid-station ended in us bailing at about halfway. A pity as it is a beautiful route in great setting. Got back to the valley at half 8 for much needed pizza!

Awesome! Stayed in the winter room of the Plan De L'Aiguille Refuge, up and down to Chamonix in 10 hours. Great conditions, tonnes of névé (except on the hard bits) and a great route. Decided to climb the thin ice goulotte left of the pendulum pitch as it looked inviting. Even got some powder turns on the descent.

Great powder descent, route was pretty good too, with tricky climbing (scottish VI,6) in the last few pitches.

Excellent conditions, with abundant and bomber neve which allowed us to move together for long sections and top out in 5:05. That said, we managed to go left after P3 for 2 pitches, then rappelled back onto the route, which we rejoined via 1P of interesting mixed. A nice variant all things considered! The final pitch was made easier by the fact that the normally bald slab which presents the famous leftward traverse, had some ice on it. We rappelled the entirety of the route. Care on the rappels as some anchors need to be reinforced especially the penultimate one.

Not sure how far we climbed up but got stuck well into the top pitches, maybe up to the pendulum? Super dry and decided to back off from that point. Ab'd route

Serac fall right in front of us at beginning of climb put us off...probably off the route for good.
