weather and conditions


good


very good conditions. the snow coverage is good. no rocks. the top half is facing west and the sun doesnt get it before 11AM (mid april). we waited until 12 noon so it was good to ski. the bottom half (south) was in perfect corn. then the glacier was all mushy...we exit the face thru the couloir on the skier left. more direct.

face SW droite/4001/SW/april 2009 10 cm good sugar edgable at the top/corn half way down

timing

we left the hut at 4 am. we were at the top at 11 am. we kindda waisted time on the glacier finding our way thru crevasses...(didnt check the day before ..duh!) and it was refrozen sliddy crap. it was fast from the base -up.

access_comment

the access could be difficult if you have to take the ladder.

hut_comment

the winter hut is very good and very small. wood stove with wood! many people there.

personal comments

its a beautiful line that not many people do? Much more interesting than the whymper i think. but the whymper is crowded all the time. superbe ambiance. pretty steep at the top.
