/ Chamonix AD Climbs
Thanks for that Mark, trying to sort out a wish list as you suggest and got "Mont Blanc and the Aiguilles Rouges: Selected Climbs" on order. I've done The Cosmiques Arete some years ago but that is on the list since my buddy hasn't. Thanks again, Den
Dent du Geant normal route rates very highly for me - fixed ropes up a lot of the climb giving an easier option if freeing it becomes too strenuous or time-consuming. Hits the 4000+m mark, and approach not too bad from Torino hut - or there's a great bivvy site just below the first couloir. Just fabulous situations all the way up - proper mountain day. Would recommend the panoramic lift across from the Midi - have to be fast to catch it back on the day of the climb though.

There's a mighty big "if" attached to that... Storm Eleanor ate the Panoramic the other week, bits of it are currently scattered across the Vallee Blanche. It is unlikely that they'll have fixed it by May this year.
