route_description

One of Argentiere's classics - easy, pleasant tour, steeper at the beginning almost flat towards the end. No technical difficulties, although attention required due to crevasses and potential hidden stones at the bottom. Rather crowded.

weather and conditions


perfect, sunshine, hot in the sun, around 0oC in the shadow


Shortly after intensive snowfall, most of the routes only getting traced at that moment, snow in good quality, light, getting heavy and sticky towards the end of the day in bottom, sunny sections. Some stones only partially covers, causing potential danger. Avalanche 3-4 according to the forecast. Amazing quality powder for that time of the year.
The glacier showing more and more signs of spring openings. Traverse from the top lift still possible, but getting more tricky.
