Superb knife edge ridge from a glacier basin. Wonderful airy climbing. 400m of vertical climbing over a 1km long ridge line.

Ticklists: Top quality Alps under 4000m.

All the hardest bits are bolt-protected. Easy to escape if the weather turns. We descended by the SW ridge which made a nice full traverse. 3am start and 13ish hour round trip from the road to squeeze it in before the thunderstorms. Held up a bit by other parties, but didn't matter.

Early start from the van - felt quite efficient and moving well.

Good stuff! Started off in big alpine boots; but switched to rock shoes later.
