VIDEO: Will Sim on the classic ice climb Nuit Blanche (WI 6)

Nuit Blanche is a modern classic water-ice climb above Argentiere near Chamonix, France.

The two-pitch WI 6 has easy access, being just a couple of minutes away from the ski pistes on the Grand Montets ski area and is justifiably popular, despite WI6 being no push over. It was first climbed by Stevie Haston and has had innumerable ascents over the years.

In this short video from Bjarne Sahlén, we see British climber Will Sim romp up the route in quite soggy conditions.
