I had intended to climb the Metrier Couloir but it wasn't in condition so lead a party with two novice alpinists up and down by the same route. It hadn't frozen over night so it was soft and we were caught in a series of rock falls on the way down, I was hit on the shoulder by one. The new guide book gives the grade as PD+

Up and down the same way. Good conditions, but the top of the couloir was more like 50 degrees, and had sugary snow sloughing off down it as we descended.

I put solo because due to the conditions we only roped up for the descent.

3.00 a.m wake up, left about 4.00. The initial rock step just behind the hut seemed quite tricky in the dark as did the route through the rock and to reach the shoulder. We gianed the top at ca. 9.00 (5hrs c.f. guide time of 4:00-4:30). Conditions in the couloir were excellent, firm neve; there was some avalanche debris was but risk from rockfall was minimal. Would have been quicker & safer to solo rather than go as a rope of 4. [We had to lend a rope to Chris Shaw & Tony Westmacott so that they has 2 ropes on the S. Ridge of the Sialouze]. long walk out - back in the valley by 16:30
