I have a week off and I'll be in chamonix without a plan. If anyone fancies getting out it would be great.
Obviously we'd need to come up with realistic routes being new partners etc. I haven't put much thought in to these but just to give an idea of what I'm thinking of if we are moving well after an outing or 2:
Do you mean S Ridge or normal route on the Peuterey? The latter is the biggest pile or choss ever. Wouldn’t recommend it at all but you do need to do it in descent after the SR (which is nice enough for most of the way up).
Yeah the south ridge. I have heard that the normal route is chossy before, but thanks for the heads up. Really I'd like to do the integral, but it's not that realistic for a team who don't know one another.
SR is worth doing but the descent down the normal route is not pleasant. You can ab a bit of it but have to down climb most of it (we mostly soloed). Route finding isn’t always obvious on the way up or down so do your research.
