With a 7 day window with no work we tried to get the most out of a week with combined activities of skiing and climbing. With the weather gods a little against our planes and ideas, working against us sort of, we decided to make at least one good try to get an alpine rock climb in there...somewhere.
|Eperon des Cosmiques|
The easiest and best plan would be Eperon at Aiguille du Midi and the Voie Rebuffat. A 6 pitch route up les Cosmiques with old style UIAA grade VI maximum, over the small roof.
A great rock climb but in our weather condition turned out to be more of an Alpine adventure. Just a great day out!!
|The approach or actually pitch 1, just snow at this time.|
|High quality rock. Anna follows on pitch 3 over the roof|
|Belay at top of pitch 4, already occupied by locals|
