First alpine route - bit of a slog! Great views from the top, especially looking down the North Face.
mountainbagger - 2nd - 11/Aug/08 with Mrs Mountainbagger, Rob, Walter

Climbed moving together in a rope of five, with guide Andy Owen and JG clients Ken, Stewart and Jan. All on snow & ice, after descending from the Dix hut about 6am. Andy set us a very fast pace, which was hard on the calves on the steeper ground. Ken somehow found at least 2 crevasses to fall into... descent included a tricky scree section, which we kept the crampons on for. Didn't stop at the Vignettes hut, but kept going down to Arolla for a well-deserved meal :) Felt MUCH stronger and fitter than early in the week, and had no problems keeping up with everyone in the group.
