tatz45: It's got to be the gondolas... The go in groups of three.

Yup they are the gondalas, you can see their continuation too on the other side of the Rognon. There are two tiny specs just above the snow

Truly stunning shot man.
You should be hailed as the king of UKC photos for your quality, composition & subject matter.
I have seen no-one who bests you.
I want to climb when & where you do!
