Anybody know what state the routes above the Cunningham Couloir have been this season, and whether anything is likely to still be climbable? Primarily interested in Burnier-Vogler, which sounds potentially the most forgiving (given it's a bit easier). How susceptible is the top of the couloir to windslab also?
Would have thought pretty dry given they are usually similar to gab/alb modica-noury type routes aren't they? cant recall seeing any/many reports this year. Maybe someone did jottnar from memory but think that's much more mixed.
Yeah that was my suspicion. Been injured through winter and the start of spring so a bit out of touch with conditions. I know these routes were very busy a few springs back when last in Chamonix, so the lack of ascents in the logbooks was a bit of an alarm bell. Lots of fresh snow as well to bury everything.
