Mark Brand 21 Jul Lead O/S Warm-up for our warm-up, enjoyable and got a good look at conditions on the Tour Ronde. That was enough to cancel any thought of climbing it the next day...

Tom Redwood 3 Jan - Straightforward, lots of rocks not covered in snow to sling the rope over to secure the nervous when necessary but top was entirely snow so we could all sit at the summit. Slow with 6 of us roped together but prevented going too fast when not acclimatised. Views were spectacular.

mollygarbs 5 Aug, 2015 Solo O/S Beautiful day, walked from Pont Helbronner and whizzed up the facile East Face in two hours with an hour retreat. Snow and ice was melting as we returned and some of the scree was in dodgy condition.
