[The chasing pack descending Pte. Welzenbach on the South Ridge of the Aig. Noire, 2 kb]1100m, 42 pitches. Described in glowing terms in the Alpine Club Guidebook. 1100m vertical ascent. 2500m of climbing. A pretty decent topo exists in the Bassinini guide of classic Mt Blanc rock routes. This is available in the Courmayeur bookshop for 12.50 euro. It shows the route as 42 piches, although you'd want to solo or move together for many of those pitches. Stances generally well equipped.

eight hours up, four hours down. lovely route. The descent is not to be under estimated, long and loose.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 26/Jul/09

This is a cracking route. The climbing gets really good after the first few hundred metres. The tiresome descent gives ita long and serious feel. We took about 12hrs for the route then bivvied after a few hours on the way down leaving a couple of hours down to the hut in the morning. Grand!
