1000m. Classic ice route starting on a rock spur. Difficulty and danger will depend on the state of the seracs. It has been skied.

A little exciting. Just after we got moving on the starting ridge, a massive icefall sprayed across where we had walked an hour previously, We bivvied near the top of the rock, on a tiny ledge. Fantastic night. Then about 6.30 we were just starting moving off the bivvy when another icefall came down the snow ramp leading up onto the glacier. All quiet, we tiptoed up it, and on up the massive glacier pitches. Traverse to the Midi took longer than we expected, ended up sleeping in the concrete corridors with some Americans who had been too slow on the Cosmiques Arete, and who spent the night entertaining each other putting glow sticks in their mouths.

Climbed to top of rock spur and started to traverse right to get on to the glacier and blocks the size of tables came down the glacier. Retreated and waited an hour and stuff still coming down. Returned next day weather not so good and ice and rocks coming down. Pete made a big effort to get up to the left without success so we gave up and went back to camp
