From the Moiry Hut go up to the Col du Pigne and then scramble up the very pleasant NNW ridge (roughly a grade 1/2 scamble). A pleasant traverse can be made by decending the SSW ridge.

Ascended with a bit of cloud. Very easy peak which can be done quite quickly. Very warm season this year led to a few weak snowbridges on the descent route down the glacier.

From Moiry hut. Heavy rain up ridge so we didn't hang about. Down the glacier.

First alpine route. Very pleasant and everything went well. Also a man from Switzerland said " wow, you guys are fast" at the top, which was nice to know. Beat gb time... Now for AD...

My first alpine summit. Nothing too hard technically but the heat and possibly altitude got to me a little so feeling pretty tired by the end. In guidebook time. Started from the car park so quite a big day.

Bad weather was approaching so we climbed the peak direct from the valley. Nice easy scrambling along the ridge to the summit, although some of the views were sadly obscured. The following day it snowed all the way down to the valley!

With Pete Stainforth and Karl Stubbs. Day clagged-in viz poor. Early start led to a short day. Conducted a crevasse rescue lesson on the way into the hut the day before (25 Jul) and prussicing lesson in the afternoon of the 26 Jul, ensured all knew how to use an Alpine Clutch to clear the top of a crevasse. Rained and snowed on the morning of 27 Jul so walked out in the hope of finding good weather elsewhere.
