route_description

Went by the variant advised by the hut keeper as the usual normal route is in bad conditions. The path is rather easy to follow and there were a lot of people taking it.
In the place where the description mentions a plaquette, there is just the screw of the bolt but a plaquette is missing.

weather and conditions


Very cold for the season. The watch took the reading of around -10 degrees on the glacier and on the summit but it felt much colder with a bit of wind. Some fresh snow at night at the level of the hut and below that was melted in the afternoon.


Rather good conditions, but some of the snow bridges on the glacier looked quite fragile already.

timing

Start at 5am, arrived after 5h under the summit rocks (with around 50 min to lead a person, who was not feeling good, back to the moraine. Then another 1h 30m to the summit and back to the glacier. From there 2h 30m back to the refuge and then 1h 30m back to the valley.

personal comments

Lots of very inexperienced people which can slow you down, especially on the slightly more delicate passages.
