from bivi in bothy on Plan de Bertol. Climb straightforward, 1x50m rope just sufficient for abseil (on stretch for 1st, bit of scrambling down on second). Very soft snow on return, but no crevasses.

A bit of late start due to a horrendous nights sleep in the Bertol hut, but an ace route.

Came from Bertol, went down via Cabane de la Tsa. Took ~6 hours longer than expected, as we lost the trail down among the rocks. Steep névés can be dangerous, ice axe arrests became necessary.

Early season ascent highly recommended, no tracks in the snow, no one else around. Amazing views in all directions.
