Tour Ronde – Gervasutti couloir 20.05.2009

3792 m ; 300 m 45°- 50° ; West ; D+ ; 5.2/ E2

It is pretty difficult to find good snow in this couloir due to its west exposition.
It is the third time i come here trying to ride it.
The previous 2 times i turned back after have climbed just above the bergshrund.
This time we managed to ride it after have climbed to the top of the Tour Ronde, even if the snow in the upper section was pretty hard.
On the way back Dave skinned up to the Aiguille du Midì lift station; i rode down the Vallèe Blanche.
