route_description

Great, classic route. Not only it's good skiing but also an entry to rarely visited and beautiful area of Grand Jorasses.
Skiing is definitely less committing than the ascent up the col. This depending on the conditions and crowds might be more tricky.
NOTE: fixed rope for the rappel, take yours only if you want to avoid queuing up.

weather and conditions


Blue sky, moderate wind


In the morning Vale Blanche covered mostly with the icy crust. Behind the col the snow slightly melted, cool to ski. Not many tracks. Mer de glace conditions degrading quickly, snow very slow and wet.
Couloir in very good conditions, icy on top but thanks to existing steps safe and easy. The skin track perfect.

avalanches

numerous wet avalanches trace, also moderate and big.

timing

8:00 taking the cable car
9:00 touring up
10:50 under the couiloir
12:00 queued to the rappel
13:20 botttom of Mer de Glace
